I installed stand-alon Hyper-V server and create 2 guest system. Now I need copy drivers for Ethernet controller. How can I do it?

  • Are you talking about the host ethernet controllers? If its the host then just hitting windows update will give you the supported version of the drivers. – tony roth Jan 12 '11 at 17:03

There are several methods that allow you to mount a guest's Hyper-V VHD file in the host OS. In Server 2008 R2 (and Windows 7), you can actually mount a VHD file as an attached drive in Disk Manager. alt text

There are also third-party tools that allow you to open VHDs and edit the file systems inside of them. R1Soft makes a tool that's free, although registration is required.

Hope this helps!

  • you don't need a 3rd party tool to mount and edit vhd's that are w2k8r2+ just use DISM. – tony roth Jan 12 '11 at 17:04
  • Good point, Tony -- I was just pointing out that such tools DO exist. I should have been clearer. – Kevin Baker Jan 12 '11 at 20:12

You can not. Best bet would be having a disc image. For windows server, just install the virtualization compontns (menu itm in connection application). Linus.... put possibly in a legcy network card, use it to download.

Alternatively make a disc image or vhd image with the files on it and attach it to the guest.
