    Does anything special have to be done installing XP Pro SP3 in a Hyper-V VM? I installed it sucessfully but it doesn't see my NIC. My other VM installations went very smoothly so this has been my only glitch.

    If the other machines see it, why not a new one? Shutdown the VM, Remove the virtual the NIC and add back in. Worth a try,

    Building one to test...will let you know...man these old screens look wierd!

    Did you install Integration Services? If not, that may be your issue.

    My build did not require that but did require Integration Services to be installed for the NIC to be installed.

    The NIC needs to be legacy


    So, what I need to do is shut down the machine and install the legacy NIC -- I have two exta NIC's in my MicroServer & I had just been spliting them between the VM with 2011 on one (Nic2) because I'm making it do more and Server 8, Win8 and XP on the other NIC (Nic3) -- if i bind the legacy NIC to Nic3 will I need to move Server 8 and Win 8 to Nic2?

    My build did not require that but did require Integration Services to be installed for the NIC to be installed.


    I have Integrating Services installed but that didn't seem to help. I installed XP Pro SP3 if that makes any difference?

    Did you try disabling the firewall, just as a test?

    If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

    Not sure why or what you're doing with the physical NICs. Hyper-V just needs one physical to bind to from there is creates a vSwitch and every NIC you create for a VM is a vNIC. Doesn't matter if its legacy or not. Only reason to use 2 physical NICs is saturation (highly unlikely in a home setup) or to make it easy separate subnets.

    Remove the NIC you have from the VM and simple add a new NIC but select legacy.

    Integration services should be installed regardless.

    Joe, my install this morning was XPSP3 also, and the image was TechNet image.

    It worked!! It was very simple -- obviously I was way overthinking this again -- just removed the current NIC from the VM and then added a Legacy NIC -- started XP up and it found it right off.

    So now I have on my MicroServer windows Server 2K8R2 with the Hyper-V role running WHS 2011, Server 8, Win 8, and now XP.

    Posted Image

    XP is showing a higher CPU useage just because I've just installed MSE and was having it update itself and run a virus scan.

    All of the CPU's are running pretty light -- WHS 2011 is the only one I'm working with almost 3TB of data on the two 3TB drives I passed thru to it but it's hardly doing anything most of the time!

    I'm not sure why XP isn't showing a heartbeat -- I need to look more into that.

    I did go into both Win 8 and Server 8 and initialized to Hyper-V Role in each but then when I actually went to start it in each one I got a message that they detected a Hypervisor already running -- you must of done some pretty fancy stuff to be able to start hyper-v within a hyper-v guest! The techNET eLearning courses on Hyper-V didn't cover that part -- they had covered the Legacy NIC but I'd forgotten it until TK mentioned it.

    I could install more guests but I'm to the point where this is about the max I can have running at the same time.

    Joe, my install this morning was XPSP3 also, and the image was TechNet image.


    That's where I got my iso -- it was the X86 XP Pro SP3 and the iso ending in 80428.

    I would be interested to know if you can stream blu-ray 1080p movies from that WHS2011 without any stuttering, etc.

    If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

    I've streamed the DVD "Support your Local Sheriff" while transfering 100GB of files to the VM WHS 2011 -- I've also streamed the BluRay "Battle LA" and "Star Trek" -- all with no issues. Plan to try "Avitar" and "Hoosiers" later.
