Running Windows Server 2008 hyper-v on intel desktop motherboard.
Posted on 2012-09-19
I have a computer with windows server 2003 installed on Intel DG33TL motherboard. This is a testing server. I wanted to see if I can upgrade this to windows server 2008 with hyper-v set up.
I ran Intel processor detection tool, it says my CPU supports virtualization. I ran virtualization detection tool from MS, it says my computer doesn't support hardware assisted virtualization.
I went to BIOS, don't see hardware virtualization menu. Does this mean, with this motherboard, I can't run hyper-v? If it is, I need to purchase new hardware combo (motherboard+CPU) which supports hyper-v. How can I make sure the new combo will work with hyper-v?
