Hello,

This is my first question, ..
I am not a stranger to computers, ... but,
I am a little bit of a newbie when it comes to servers and virtualisation.

Here is my problem, ..

I am currently running :
HP Proliant DL360 G4
2 x Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.40GHz
6 GB Memory

I am painfully aware that this servers does not support hardware virtualisation, and as a result of that cannot use Hyper-V.

I should also mention that to my knowledge there are NO options for VT / virtualisation in the BIOS(Huge problem).

I am planning on creating a setup to let a few friends and family access the server to use their own Virtual desktop and a few pre installed softwares.

Please could someone suggest the following to make this possible,

1 - Ideal Operating System (windows server 2003/2008/R2 Win 764bit etc..)
2 - Best solution for creating Virtual machines (an individual desktop for about 10 users)

If some one could point me in the right direction i will be forever grateful as it has been preventing me from continuing with my project for about 2 weeks :(


Thank you in advance

Best Regards
Andy
