    Steps to be taken for using Hyper-V with Windows 8

    Even though I have installed Hyper-V into my PC running on Windows 8, I have no idea about how to use it. It seems that the system accepts it as a virtualization server. But, I read in some forums that it can be used as a virtual PC. How can I use this program properly with Windows 8?

    Hi.
    In Windows 8 the application is Hyper-V.

    >>To use Hyper-V your system and processor must have the required hardware features and these must be enabled in the motherboard BIOS. Visit the below link:
    http://www.winsupersite.com/article/...hyperv-142889.


    >>Go to "Turn Windows features on or off" and check if you can enable Hyper-V.

    Otherwise use VirtualBoxhttp://https://www.virtualbox.org/ or VMware Player http://www.vmware.com/products/player

    Thank you.

    Run the command Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature –Online –FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V (or Dism /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:Microsoft-Hyper-V /All).
    Verify that there were no errors.
    Shut down and restart the computer.
    Log back on to the system with an administrator account.
