    followed the procedure, didn't realise until the end that using XP requires a different procedure.....so had to delete everything and start again....maybe at step 4,6 there should be a note to skip to step 5,1.... also why are steps 5,3 to 5,6 required for XP and vista but not for W7 & onwards.....would like to understand the reasons......would be excellent if a separate procedure could be written for legacy OS, to save jumping about through this one........I followed everything, but was told at the end that no OS found....also in image 4,8 there is NO option to use a cd/DVD for installing the OS I had to create an ISO image first.........

    This quote from the very beginning of this tutorial:

    Contents:
    Part One: Some vocabulary
    Part Two: Setup Hyper-V
    Part Three: Create a virtual switch
    Part Four: Create a Windows virtual machine (Windows 7 or later)
    Part Five: Create a legacy Windows vm (Windows Vista or earlier)
    Part Six: Create a Linux vm
    The same titles used in the list of contents are used for each part. I am very sorry about you having difficulties to understand the tutorial but really, I could not make it any clearer and easier to follow: You go through parts 1 through 3 to set up Hyper-V, then according to which OS you want to install you select either Part 4 for Windows guests with Windows 7 or later, Part 5 for legacy Windows (Vista or earlier), or Part 6 for Linux.

    Because the New Virtual Machine Wizard does not allow selecting a legacy network adapter which is needed for legacy Windows virtual machines to connect to the network. The tutorial has not a single unnecessary step.

    But I have written separate instructions for legacy Windows guests! It's called "Part Five" in this tutorial!

    Maybe if you read the tutorial first taking your time in trying to understand it and then followed it logically and to the letter? If and when you install Windows guest on Hyper-V following these instructions to the letter, it works; "OS not found" error is plain and simple a user error, the user has done something wrong.

    Please tell me how much easier to understand and clearer I could make this? Quote from the tutorial, step 4.8 which you mentioned:

    4.8) Select the install media for your vm. If you install from a CD or DVD disk on your host CD/DVD drive, select Physical CD/DVD drive and from drop down list select the correct drive. In this example I chose to use an ISO file containing Windows 7 Ultimate installation files. Click Next to continue:

    To be totally honest I cannot see how I could change the tutorial to be any easier to understand? If it as it is now is too difficult to understand for some users, maybe the reason is somewhere else, not in the tutorial?

    your reply is not very polite.......I admit I missed the beginning contents list and went straight into the procedure, ' my mistake '
    what I was trying to sayi about image 4.8 that when I got to this stage there was NOT the option to chose a DVD drive only an ISO image, maybe my W10 PRO is different than the one used for this tutorial.....
    obviously I am a bit of a thicky......so will remove what I have done and try again......
    thanks

    My response was accurate and valid, honestly and to best of my knowledge answering each and every point you made. There's nothing even remotely impolite in it. It is quite difficult to answer to someone when all the issues and questions presented are based on the user in question not understanding something.

    The option to use a physical DVD install media is always there, except when installing 2nd Generation virtual machine; to install OS on 2nd Generation (UEFI) vm, only ISO image is accepted as install media. See tutorial steps 4.4 to 4.8.

    Just shut down the vm and go to its settings, change the DVD or ISO to the new one:

    Nested virtualization added to Hyper-V in Build 10565 released on Monday 12th of October 2015!

    Earlier in the year, we announced that we will be building nested virtualization so that people could run Hyper-V Containersin Hyper-V virtual machines.In preparation for the first public preview of Hyper-V Containers, we are releasing a preview of nested virtualization. This feature allows you to run Hyper-V in a virtual machine (note that this is Hyper-V on Hyper-V only… other hypervisors will fail).
    Although Hyper-V Containers have not been released yet, for now you can try out this feature with Hyper-V virtual machines.
