Deploy Hyper-V VM in Windows 10. In my case, it’s very simple configuration, for enterprise deployment on Windows Server Hyper-V you will need store vhd’s and vm’s files in the separate named folders or even disks, based on what you have.

In this post, we deploy Hyper-V VM in Windows 10, step-by-step.

1. Start your “Hyper-V Manager” and click “New“;

hvvmwinp112. In the drop down list select “Virtual Machine“;

hvvmwinp123. In the new window press “Next“;

hvvmwinp134. Enter name of your VM, in my case 21-109-10-sccm.

At this stage, you may change folder in which vm config files store. Or use default settings as I.

Press “Next“;

hvvmwinp145. Select “Generation” of your VM. (for old Windows, Linux better use “Generation 1”, read more). I use “Generation 2“. “Press “Next”;

hvvmwinp156. Enter memory size for your VM. (You may set check mark “Use Dynamic Memory for this machine“, read more). Press “Next“;

hvvmwinp167. Select early prepared network connection. In this deployment, I use “External“. Press “Next“;

hvvmwinp178. Create new, use existing “VHD(X)” or select “Attach a virtual hard disk later” (to attach later). My “VM Generation 2”, so it uses “VHDX” format. Press “Next“;

hvvmwinp189. Select from where you install Operating System to VM or select “Install operating system later“. I use prepared “.iso” of Windows 10 1607 x64 EN, stored in folder “D:\ISO“. Press “Next”;

hvvmwinp1910. Check summary information and press “Finish”;

hvvmwinp11011. Our VM created! But don’t hurry run it. It requires more in-depth configuration.
