Note: The Screencast about the free Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 is available here

We have already demonstrated how to install and how to upgrade Hyper-V on a full installation of Windows Server 2008.
Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 is the best choice for root/host partition, when running Hyper-V. It provides the smallest footprint, and allows you to achieve best performance for your guests/virtual machines.

In the following Screencast, we will demonstrate how to update a Core Server installation to Hyper-v RTM, and how to enable the Hyper-V server role. In addition, we will show you how to connect and manage remotely Hyper-V on a Core Server, from a Windows Server 2008 full installation.
