I definitely have occasional delusions. Give us an update on how it worked.

comment Hyper-V Thread Priorities host and guest - how do they correspond?
Some hypervisors require that you need the same number of physical processors available as there are virtual processors in the VM. Hyper-V does not. There's a tradeoff here. The VM will only run well if it is paravirtualized in a way that will allow the guest OS to schedule its virtual processors well on top of that hypervisor. This is true for Windows on top of Hyper-V.

I don't have a reference. But if there were one, it would be created by coming to me. I'm the software architect for Hyper-V.

comment Is it possible to run a “Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V Virtual Machine” on Windows 7x64 Pro machine?
Again, your problem is that those VHDs have an OS image in them set up to run within a Hyper-V VM. And VHD files are just containers, equivalent to a disk drive. Just because you can put something on a disk doesn't mean it will boot when you attach it to a computer. You may need to adjust the contents of the disk to boot it. The link you listed, tbone, is one that talks about booting a VHD on a physical machine, not a VM. So instead of adjusting the contents of the virtual disk for a different hypervisor, you'd need to adjust it for your physical machine.

Yes, I understood that. But I was trying to answer tbone's question. I would expect the performance to be so bad, particularly on a laptop, that another answer was warranted.

comment Hyper-V, Hyperthreading, and the implications of per-core licensing
Hyperthreading doesn't affect your licensing, which is by physical processor, not core or thread.
