Requirements for installing Hyper-V
If you need to install Hyper-V, the first step is to make sure you have all the system requirements to do so. While these requirements may vary slightly from version to version of Windows Server, the core requirements are applicable to any version of Windows Server.
So, you must have the following:
- 64-bit processor with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz
- SLAT, which is used to improve the performance of virtual machines and reduce hypervisor overhead
- Support for VM monitor mode extensions
- At least 4 GB of RAM so that there is no interruption in the operation of the VM
- Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization Technology (AMD-V)
- Hardware-Enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP) with AMD NX (no execute bit) or Intel XD (disable execution bit)
You can check if you have all of these requirements in Windows PowerShell. In the Hyper-V Requirements section, all Hyper-V requirements must say “Yes”.
Hyper-V: Role or Server?
Both products are good and do pretty much the same thing. Of course, they also have some differences, so the user can choose the product that best fits their needs.
For example, Hyper-V Server is more often used by professional administrators with experience in using command line interfaces (CLIs). Hyper-V Role is also suitable for beginners who are just getting started with the Hyper-V environment. Both products can be managed remotely via Hyper-V Manager MMC (Microsoft Management Console) or System Center Virtual Machine Manager, or by using PowerShell.
Here are a few more significant differences between the products:
Hyper-V Server is a self-service hypervisor-based server virtualization product, while Hyper-V Role is just a Windows Server virtualization component.
Hyper-V Server does not require a license (however, all guest OSs must be genuine), while Hyper-V Role has compulsory licensing.
Hyper-V Server can be used immediately after installation, while Hyper-V Role requires additional configuration, more often manually.
Hyper-V Server once exclusively offered a CLI. Now Hyper-V Role additionally provides a graphical user interface (GUI).
In terms of environment implementation and quality of performance, Hyper-V Server wins because it contains only the Windows hypervisor and core virtualization components.
Hyper-V Role is only a component of Windows, so a Hyper-V environment with multiple virtual machines will be significantly slower, due to the cumbersome architecture.
Case 1. Hyper-V Role installation on Windows
It is very easy to do this using the Windows Control Panel. In the Programs section, select “Uninstall programs”. Then click on "Turn Windows features on or off." Now find the component “Hyper-V” and activate it. Next, the installation of Hyper-V will begin, after which you should restart your computer.
Also, you can use PowerShell to install Hyper-V with administrator rights. Enter the following command: Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Hyper-V -All. Type or copy it and press Enter. It is also recommended to restart your computer after installation.
Case 2. Hyper-V Server installation
Load Hyper-V Server by selecting the boot image, writing the .ISO file to the DVD / CD or USB-drive. Then start your computer from the installation media and click “Install Now”. Now click on “Custom Installation” and click “Next”.
Choose the location where you want to install Hyper-V Server. But remember that the selected disk will be overwritten. Therefore, make a copy of the data in advance. Now wait for the end of the Hyper-V Server installation. Set up your account and enter your new password. After these changes, you can use the Hyper-V Server environment.
RAID Recovery and files recovery
You may need to recover some important files. In that case, you don't need to search far and wide: just download DiskInternals RAID Recovery.
This professional application supports both manual and automatic detection of important parameters such as array type, RAID controller type, disk order and stripe size. RAID Recovery recovers files from damaged RAID arrays, including 0, 1, 0 + 1, 1 + 0, 1E, RAID 4, 5, 50, 5EE, RAID 6, 60 and JBOD. You can also preview the recovered files from the array, and you do all this absolutely for free. If the quality of the recovered flies suits you, then you will be prompted to purchase a license on the company’s website and enter a unique license key in the corresponding window.
Now you are free to export the recovered data anywhere and save them to any disk.
