I need to setup several Hyper-V VMs, all with the same base OS configuration. This is for a web site testing lab, so I'll need to start with Windows XP and then each one will have a different version of IE (6-8). I may need to do the same for other OSes as well.
It would be nice to install the base OS I need, then clone it and selectively apply the software installations I want. Is there any easy way to do this?
