Problem creating Windows 7 Pro Virtual Machine in Hyper-V Windows 8 Pro PC
Posted on 2013-02-02
We have been trying to create a VM in our Windows 8 Pro PC using Hyper-V with success.
It does install the VM successfully but when installing the Windows 7 Pro it restart the w7pro installation again. We tried both ways: first created the VM with no OS and later installing the OS also tried installing marking the ISO option so it would install it right after creating the VM.
We have Windows XP VMs migrated from our previous Windows7 Pro PC to our WIndows 8 Pro with success. Based on this, we decided to first create the Windows 7 Pro VM in the Windows 7 Pro PC then migrated as the same as the Windows XP and it didn't work.
The problem faced is the same in all type installation we did: it would restart and display "Hyper-V" and restart installation of w7pro; everytime.
How can we create a VM with Windows 7 Pro operating system?
