Exercise 1 - Enable Hyper-V Feature

Hyper-V is a machine virtualization platform from Microsoft that enables you to install and run multiple 32-bit or 64-bit OS in parallel on the same machine. This enables you to work on various OS without having to invest in expensive computer hardware. In addition, you can use Hyper-V to install and test virtual machines of various configurations without affecting the functionality of other virtual or physical machines.

For Hyper-V service to run in Windows 8.x, the computer hardware must have a 64-bit processor that supports second level address translation (SLAT), at least 4 GB of system memory and BIOS-level virtualization support. You can verify with your system vendor to find out if your computer can run this virtualization platform.

To be able to see the pre-installation phase of Windows, you will use Hyper-V as this gives you access to the entire installation process.
