Looking for best practice for migrating from server 2003 to 2010.
I have approximately 150 users and will be installing a Hyper V server to host Exchange 2010. The database is a little over 80GB.

Thanks in advance for assistance.

to add to abbasiftt link i will share with you two more tutorials

http://msexchangegeek.com/2010/01/30/rapid-transition-guide-from-exchange-2003-to-exchange-2010/

in short you will need to install exchange 2010 in your 2003 organization and move all services (mailbox/owa/public folders etc...) to the new one


For the HyperV part the only advise I would give you is not to put the edb on a vhd
