I'm installing sbs 2008 on hyper v, its a new server with 4 gig of memory and is for test only. SBS installs but then prompts insufficient physical memory when running the sbs install part, I have given 3 gig to the o.s and one gig to hyper V, is there any way around this as I don't care how slow it runs its purely for test environment. I would like to run it as a vm. Thanks

Yes it would be easier to install straight, I'm trying to get as much experience of hyper V as possible.
From my experience of Hyper V so far it seems to fall well short of vmware!
 I do have the option in the sbs wizard to acknowledge all warnings but this is greyed out. I think a straight install is my only option.

This is what I want to do too! I want to install this on my personal computer to start using SBS 2008 and just get to know it.

I would also want to know if we can run a vm and install SBS on it.

Since SBS 2008 requires 4GB RAM minimum, you can't install on your Hyper-V unless you can provide that minimum - this is why the acknowledge option is greyed out.
