Hyper-V Template

Hello Experts,

I was successful creating a VM machine in Hyper V that has windows server 2012. I would like to create a template from this server as a standard. Is there a easy way to do that?

I will need to transfer the disk file to a usb and hand it over to a technician.

Common practice,
you can also do the same by copying VHD into USB and ask your technician to create a new Virtual Machine in another Hyper-V Host and copy that VHD from USB to local drive then attach it with the new VM.
