    Hello Kari,

    Thank you so much for your extensive help in this thread!

    On quick question: Where do I find the menu you have shown in your screenshot so that I can have better integrated services? (in the attachment link in your comment quoted below)

    Thank you much!

    Again, depending on the switch you have assigned to vm. External and Internal switches = full network connections between host and virtual machines, private = no connection to host.

    Enhanced Mode (guest w. 8 or later, Server 2012 or later, Red Hat Linux Enterprise, CentOS Linux) all host devices can be used, see below. On guests running 7 or older Windows or other than mentioned Linux the same can be achieved by using Remote Desktop Connection to connect to the vm.

    In enhanced mode it can see everything:
    The enhanced mode basically brings the best of RDP to Hyper-V.

    Hi there

    Main disadvantages in HYPER-V from my point of view are :

    1) Hideous USB support so quite difficult to add any sort of specialized hardware to the GUEST OS if done via USB connection

    2) Sound support on the GUEST is limited (if even possible --Kari would have a better answer for that)

    3) You need W8/8.1/W10 PRO or above editions to run it --won't work on HOME premium editions as HYPER-V isn't installed on those editions (or even available).

    4) fiddly sharing HDD's on your network with the Guest.

    I have an XP VM machine that has a load of specialized hardware - the hardware drivers install just fine in the VM itself when running VMWARE workstation.

    It really depends on what you want your guest to do -- whether you need to add a load of hardware or just for "Officy" things and general Windows testing.

    If you don't like VMware VBOX is another alternative to HYPER-V.

    What I would be interested in seeing working is a HYPER-V type of installation without the Windows overhead (rather like Esxi) with some passthru to the VM of actual hardware --that would make for a very interesting use of HYPER-V for running a decent load of Virtual Servers -- any help here Kari !!!!.

VMWARE vs HYPER-V - difficult choice
HI there By using the bcedit trick I can run both HYPER-V VM's and VMWARE (not simultaneously though - you have to re-boot). VMWARE has the advantage of not relying on RDP for all communications - RDP could be real slow on a laggy network....
