Can't install Hyper-V Update on Server 2008

Hi,

I'm trying to install the Hyper-V update for server 2008 Standard edition x86. When I run ver, it shows that I am running 6.0.6002.

I have downloaded the update from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950050, but when I try to install it says that the update does not apply to this version. I can also not see the update in windows update.

I have verified that my server (PowerEdge T310) does support virtualization and that it is turned on in BIOS.

Regards,

Kevin

You do not have Hyper-V installed and you cannot install it.

Hyper-V is a 64 bit ONLY feature of Windows and cannot install or run on x86 only Hardware/Windows Installations.  You would need to cleanly install an x64 bit version of Windows.

You CAN install the management tools and if you are trying to install them PURELY for managing another Hyper-V server, I would install the tools before you attempt to apply the update.

Do you currently have the hyper-v role enabled? Enable it then run windows updates or install the update if required.

Hi,

The hyper-v role does not show up as this is not running r2. I read that it needs to be added by installing that update.
