Running Windows Thin PC RC on Hyper V

 [Updated:- 13 June 2011]

Microsoft had released Windows Thin PC RC and soon it going to RTM on 1 July 2011. The iso size is around 1.1 GB  and the operating system is based on Windows 7 and it came light with some few features:
a) Security enhancement such as AppLocker, BitLocker, Enhanced Auditing, and Streamlined User Account Control.
b) Power management
c) Manageability enhancement
d) Embedded enhancement
Recommended hardware specification:-
 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
 1 GB RAM, 16 GB available hard disk space
 DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or later version driver
 Bootable DVD-ROM drive

Once I have download from Connect site, I have install into Hyper V Server which I’m going to use on my VDI testing environment. Below is the screen shot of the installation process.

  1. I don't what the advantages are in running Windows Thin PC on Hyper V. I'll probably try it and give you some feed back afterwards.
