Verifying Hyper-V requirements

In order to install Hyper-V, you should make sure your server supports it by verifying the prerequisites. Failing with the Hyper-V requirements will result in an error while you install it.

Neither Windows nor Hyper-V offers a tool to verify the prerequisites, but the processor companies created tools such as AMD-V System Compatibility Check and INTEL Processor Identification Utility.

You will see in this recipe how to use them and also how to use the Coreinfo tool to facilitate the process.

Getting ready

To verify the prerequisites of your processor, you must download the Intel Processor Identification Utility. You can download it from the following link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=1881&DwnldID=7838&lang=eng&iid=dc_rss ...
