Prior to creating a virtual machine, you must place the ISO file in any network folder that can be accessed by the server with the hypervisor. If you open the Microsoft Hyper-V Manager console on the same server on which the hypervisor is installed, you can place the ISO file on a local hard drive.

To create a virtual machine:

  1. Open the Management Console of Microsoft Hyper-V Manager.
  2. In the left part of the window, select the hypervisor on which you want to deploy the virtual machine image.
  3. In the context menu, select NewVirtual Machine.

    The Virtual Machine Creation Wizard opens.

  4. Follow the steps of the Wizard:
    1. Select the virtual machine name and path.
    2. Select the virtual machine generation.
    3. Allocate memory for the virtual machine.
    4. Configure the network connection.
    5. Connect a virtual hard drive.
    6. Select the drive for deploying the virtual machine image.
    7. Confirm creation of the virtual machine.

A virtual machine with the defined settings will be created. Make sure that it is displayed in the Virtual Machines list on the selected hypervisor.

The virtual machine is created with the default number of processors. You must change this setting in the properties of the virtual machine after it is created.
