Using MS Official Course 6367A on Windows 8 with Hyper-V RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have both the Trainer and Student guides for an old MS training - 6367A from 2008. It requires Virtual Server SP1 to run the VHD's. However, since I have client hyper-V running on my Windows 8 PC, I'd like to use that instead. 

    Does anyone have any guidance on how to set this up properly?

  • Hi,

    With regards to running the Virtual Server images in Hyper-V for Windows 8, it can be done but it will be a challenge. There are a lot of differences in the VHD format and configuration settings. I would suggest making a copy of the image and then importing it into the Hyper-V environment. My guess is that you will then spend a good bit of time searching the web working through any errors that are thrown.

    With regards to having both the trainer and student guides, please be aware that trainer guides are protected and should only be used by Microsoft Certified Trainers.

    The 6367 course is a decent one. Good luck!
