Hyper-V with 1 Virtual Machine

Last Modified: 2015-06-04
I'm setting up a SQL Server.  The hosting company recommended to use Hyper V for easier maintenance.  So now we have 1 host machine with 1 guest.  The guest will be running SQL and it will be the only VM on the host.  In the past, without using Hyper V, we had 2 drive partitions, C with the OS and D with SQL and all the DATA.  Now since we are using Hyper V, is there any point to have 2 partitions on the guest system or is installing everything on the one C partition now OK?

Just to add, the host has 2 partitions.  C or the OS and D where the Virtual Machine is.
