  1. Moving all Virtual machines to another drive


    I have to move all of my virtual machines to a new SSD because the old SSD is out of space. Is it best to use this -> Move Hyper-V Virtual Machine in Windows 10 procedure to move all of my virtual system to another physical drive one by one ? Also once they are moved, will the Hyper-V console find them there ? Then Just delete them from their original locations one by one ?

    Or is there some other procedure that works as just as well ?

    Thanks

    :)

    Move windows 10 pro license from virtual machine to physical machine.

    I need to move a windows 10 pro license from a virtual machine to a physical machine. The license has been bought as windows 10 pro not upgrade etc. The thing is that the computer (Mac book pro) where the virtual machine used to live is now dead beyond
    repair and to expensive to use. So I want to install windows 10 on a dell laptop now but I cant deactivate the old license on the virtual machine. Any suggestions?

    Installing a Virtual Machine in Windows 10

    Step #1 is to decide which virtual machine software you wish to install.

    The three most popular choices are:

    • VirtualBox (from Oracle)
    • VMWare Workstation Player (from VMWare); and
    • Hyper-V (from Microsoft)

    Once you've made your choice you can find detailed, illustrated instructions for installing each one on the internet.

    As a personal suggestion: You might find it easier to use either VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation Player. Hyper-V is more complicated to setup.

    Between VirtualBox and VMWare, I think you'll find VirtualBox more user-friendly, and it has the advantage of allowing you to create checkpoints - backups of your virtual machine - whereas to do that in VMWare you'll need to upgrade to their (expensive!)
    paid version.

    Virtual Machine on SurfaceBook2

    Hello,

    We are meeting hard time installing our soft - does not work on virtual machine - on Surface Book 2.

    Customer Surface runs Windows10Pro on virtual machine and the owner seems to know nothing about virtual machine. We do not understand!

    We know Surface Book comes with Win10S and could upgrade to Win10Pro.

    At that time, does upgrade create a virtual machine?

    Form where came this virtual machine? Really lost!

    we asked our customer for running CMD>Systeminfo | findstr /i mod yielding the following.

    System Model : Surface Book 2

    [01]: Intel64 Family 6 Model 142 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel 1910Mhz

    Best Regards



    ***Moved from Surface Book 2 / Install, update, and repair***
