    Hi there

    Just starting now -- First I want to "Clone" the existing VM's -- will start with Windows 10 (if it breaks I haven't lost anything other than a bit of time). I'll also backup my existing HOST system -- you can never have too much backup !!!!

    I then need to UNINSTALL VMware tools from the current VM and also disable VMware workstation (got the serial nr etc again in case I need to re-use it).

    I'll then enable HYPER-V.

    I've seen a utility where I can convert a VMware machine to HYPER-V so I'll try that

    Then see what happens.

    Cheers

    It will be a bit pain in the you know where, VMware and Hyper-V do not like each other and both refuse to work if the other is installed.

    Good luck .

    Good stuff here Kari, wish I had seen it before I tried Hyper-V ... it was easy enough after a few stumbling blocks never having played with VMs before (other than IBM iron)

    Here are some references I found after the fact

    Hi there
    Same restriction applies to VBOX as well. Just finishing Backups before I start installing.

    Jimbo I have had no issues using VirtualBox and Hyper-V on same Windows 8.1 host, have not tested on Windows 10 yet but I believe it will work, too.

    Hi there

    I'll try that too - I certainly had a problem in W8.

    Hi there

    That's what I got the first time so I uninstalled and tried VMWARE after disabling HYPER-V.

    Now though trying the HYPER-V option -- I think in the long run this will run VM's a lot better than VMWARE.

    I'm also going to have a go with XEN or similar on Linux -- this is getting all quite fun !!!!-

    Woman won't let me set up my "Trading hardware" with 4 ginormous monitors !!! that I've got until all the other hardware in the place has been "tidied up" --she says she wants to come into a HOME - not a Computer Lab or a "Market trading dealing floor" !!! with bits of computer hardware and cables all over the place in every room !!!!.

    Well I've hidden myself in the loft with two laptops and a desktop -- will have to "appease her" though over the weekend. !!!!

    Cheers

    Some Linux distros require the same legacy NIC stuff than XP vm as told previously here. If you can't connect your Linux vm to network, try removing the virtual NIC from vm settings and add a legacy NIC connecting it to external switch.
