Verifying Hyper-V requirements

In order to install Hyper-V, you should make sure that your server supports it by verifying the prerequisites. Failing which, 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 processor companies have created tools, such as AMD-V System Compatibility Check and INTEL Processor Identification Utility.

In this recipe, you will learn how to use them and the MachineSLATStatusCheck tool to facilitate the process.

Getting ready

To verify the prerequisites of your processor, you must download Intel Processor Identification Utility. You can download it from the following link:
