Add RTM Hyper-V to 2008 "Without Hyper-V"

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by William Fields, Sep 22, 2008.

  1. I may have messed up... I just did a brand new 2008 install "without hyper-v"
    because the one included in 2008 was beta code. I was assuming I'd be able to
    download and install Hyper-V either from MSDN subscribers area, or from the
    public downloads area.

    Is it possible to download/install RTM Hyper-V to a an install of "Server
    2008 Without Hyper-V"?

    If so, what do I need to download and where can I find it?

    No. You need to install the correct version of Server 2008 x64 with
    Hyper-V. You can then add the RTM version of Hyper-V from Windows Update.
    (In fact it will just happen if you have automatic updates on).

    After the update installs and you reboot you can enable the Hyper-V role.
