We only have one hardware box. We converted our C drive into a VHD. We want to run install Hyper-V on our server to then load the new VHD as a virtual machine.
We will be updating the physical box to 2012, but want to make sure the VHD file properly works in Hyper-V before attempting to upgrade the physical box to 2012 which will run the Hyper-V services.
Previously I thought I found the correct sysprep instructions but that was awhile back.
I can't find the proper steps to proceed so the virtual machine would not conflict with the physical machine.
Also the current server is not acting as a domain controller and does not use Active Directory. No clients connect to it.
