  1. creating a VM win7, on win 10 pro i3 gen 9 machine


    hello all,
    forgive me if i'm asking something that's addressed elsewhere...

    new member, longtime reader of your forums...

    i have questions regarding creating a VM win7, on win 10 pro i3 gen 9 machine...i'm getting conflicting answers.
    yes gen 9 will support 7 pro 64 as vm in hyper-v, and no, gen 9 won't support 7.

    i don't have the 10 machine yet, looking for someone who has done it, namely a win7 vhd backup image imported to THE HYPER-V ENVironment as a VM. or a clean install of my retail 7 pro if necessary

    my local guys, who system i'm still working on 12+ years later, have what i want(below listed i3 9th gen) however dude answered my query as follows:

    me: 'i'd like to be able to use my current install of 7, as is, w/ hyper-v as a VM''

    them:
    ''Unfortunately, I dont think your load of 7 will work on our current PCs. After the 6th generation intel processors, they dropped all support for Windows 7. 7th Gen would work with some workarounds, but since 8th and 9th Generation, they do not work at all as far as I know''

    veritas, i'm a big fan of, answer:
    ''In my opinion, I guess that the differences between Intel CPU generations have no problem when you run Windows 7 as Hyper-V VM on Windows 10 because Hyper-V layer can basially absorb the differences of CPU generations. The Hyper-V on old CPU cannot emulate the new CPU but the Hyper-V on new CPU can emulate the old CPU.

    I think that you can recover your Win 7 as a VM on Win 10 using the backup data that was backed up on Windows 7 without using Veritas System Recovery 21.''

    ty,

  2. Does windows 10 pro provide VM for windows 7 pro

    Andre,

    A related question: If the processor is an i7-7th gen, that is NOT on the Win7 compatibility list, can you still run a VM of it at all?

    Thanks.

  3. Physical Machine Restore Image (Win 8.1) to New VM (on Win 10)

    Hello everyone,

    I made a Windows Image Backup of Windows 8.1 Pro on 7/29/15 before doing a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. Win 10 is up and running. I got Hyper-V running. i want to now have my old working everything installed version of Windows 8.1 pro running in a VM
    on the Win 10 machine.

    I cannot seem to restore the backup image.

    I have gotten close and it has taken forever to get there.

    I tried installing a new Win 8.1 Pro VM and then restoring the image: Failed.

    I tried an empty new VM with an empty drive, boot to 8.1 pro iso and then recover: Failed.

    I get this a long error that ends with (0x80042412).

    any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Patrick Brewer

    Windows 10 VM

    Hi everyone,

    Quick question, will Windows 10 create a Win 7 VM so I can use drivers and programs from Win7 like Sony Vegas Pro 13 and Photoshop?
