I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my workstation at home. I am trying various virtualisation solutions but none of them have met all of my needs. I am now going to try Hyper-V, but can I setup Hyper V machines (or whatever the name is for a HyperV VM) via 7? I know there are Remote Server Administration Tools for Win 7 but does this give me all the functionality?
Is it possible to upgrade from my version of 7, above, to Server 2008 EE x64 and keep all my apps/data intact? The only issue with this is I will lose Win Media Player but I can get this back from MS's website, on the other side of the coin, I will lose stuff like games which I do not need.
My VMs are just MOSS/AD/Exchange, I don't really need staging servers.
