Hyper-V fresh new setup
Hi, I have an MSDN Win2008 x64, new Dell1 socket quad-core server with 4G of RAM, received 2 days ago, did a successful win install, then I added the hyper-V role which was successfull as well. After rebooting, when I open the Hyper-V mmc, I don't have in the action menu "Add new VM", nothing is there and I can do nothing. I see my server name node but can do nothing. Thanks for your help

Ihave just noticed that Virtual Machine Management Service (VMMS)is not started andget"Windows could not start the VMMS on local computer error 87 : The parameter is incorrect" Does this has any relation, if yes, what should I do ? I have a US version of windows, french keyboard and french time format

You got to have english keyboard/preferences installed to have Hyper-V (Beta version) working. It seems it is fixed in the RC version ("Ability to enable Hyper-V RC on international locales" is mentioned under approvements). - Bjarne Duelund

Hi SalamELIAS, Please be sure to enable Hyper-V Beta on a system with the locale and language set to EN-US. Hyper-V beta will only work if you select "English (United States)" as the location in the parent partition. Based on my research, here is a workaround which may be helpful for you. (it worked fine for me) 1.Uninstall current Hyper-V role 2. Reboot 3. Control Panel - Regional and Language Options 4. Currency Format: English (United States) 5.Location: United States 6.Keyboards and Languages: Setting "English (United States) - US" as default, then deleting the others 7.Administrative: Change system locale to English (United States) 8.Administrative: Apply 9. Administrative: Copy to reserved accounts - Default user account AND system accounts 10.OK 11.Reboot 12.Install Hyper-V role again Hope it helps.

You also need to enable Intel VT and DEP in the system bios before Hyper-V will start. If unsure how to edit those settings, see your system documentation. (Usually under advanced settings in bios)

Thanks for your responses. In fact, yeterday after posting, I came across this blog, http://blogs.technet.com/jhoward/archive/2007/12/13/windows-server-2008-rc1-with-hyper-v-beta-is-now-available.aspx I did a reinstall and chose Regional settings = US, langauge = US but keyboard is french. Hyper V and VMMS worked correctly.
