  1. Hyper-v W10 Pro OEM activation

    I bought an OEM activation key for W10 Pro and applied to host OS, activated the Hyper-V, installed W10 Pro as guest OS and tried to activate it with the same OEM key. As far as I understand, the OEM key is bound to the hardware and I'm activating it in the same PC, but an error is thrown, saying that the activation key is already used in another device. Do I really need to buy another licence?

    Where is the Hyper V Manager, How to I start it ?

    I am trying to setup an XP virtual Machine on Windows 10 Pro.

    I followed the steps in Neil Peterson article of 5/9/2016.

    System Requirements - done - ok

    Install Hyper-V - done - ok

    Create a Virtual Switch - skip

    Create a Virtual Machine

    Create a Virtual Machine with Hyper-V Manager

    These steps walk through how to manually create a virtual machine and deploy an operating system to this virtual machine.

    • In Hyper-V Manager, click Action > New >
      Virtual Machine
      to bring up the New

    Uhhhhhhhhh - this step obviously implies one knows

    1) Where the Hyper-V Manager is

    2) How to start the Hyper-V Manager

    Isn't that odd ?
