In a previous blog, I talked about the move to a 64-bit Hyper-V image, and the reasons why. Now, with the inevitable end to our 32-bit VPC image, I thought I would give you an update on where we are.
The image set (and I’ll discuss that more in a second) is designed to run on any machine that can run a Hyper-V (typically Windows 2008 R2 Server), and has at least 8GB of RAM, approx. 200GB of free hard disk space (or an external hard disk with appropriate space and a quick enough interface – preferably USB3), and at least a dual core processor.
As most sales consultants don’t want to run Windows 2008 R2 Server as their primary operating system on a laptop, we will publish with the image a guide to help explain how you can take a Windows 7-based laptop and create a dual-boot-to-VHD (dual boot to a Windows 2008 R2 Server Hyper-V image) scenario.
We will deliver a few different things with this Hyper-V:
Image B – This image is the Microsoft Dynamics GP image, and runs in 4GB of memory, and also contains:
Very soon, the image set will ship. We hope that it’ll bring many successful sales and deep demo experiences!
