terms of the hardware requirements in detail. We have the harbor assisted virtual ization, which was the other thing that I mentioned as well. So in this one, it basically allows you to simulate a complete hardware environment. So I e. A virtual machine eso basically from here on unmodified guest operating system,
using the same instruction set
as the host machine. So in this case, if you've got you got Windows 10 environment and that's the host
and then you have a guest environment that runs on Windows as well. It will execute its own operating system needs on the hardware
without even you could even set it up so they don't even know that they exist to each other. And that's what it allows you to do. It allows them to talk directly to the hardware hence hardware assistant. Virtual ization. The managed the management operating system, the operating system that you had
as you installed Hyper V
doesn't need to know anything about any of the guest operating systems. That's the key thing has every operating system has its own key area toe work in
this is also known as a few different names. Accelerated virtualization hardware virtual machine or hatred? B. M. You may have heard of that one. That's probably the most common one or native virtual ization, those air kind of other term terms that they use. We come back to this thing with second level address. Translation is required
for client hyper V, so we've already discussed this slightly. It's not required for any server version of Hyper V is highly desirable. However, it makes a massive difference. Andi allows the virtualized software to talk directly through the hyper visor to the hardware,
almost as if it thinks effectively. What it does is it makes the guest operating system think
is the only operating system in that environment, and it talks directly to the hardware,
so it's almost kind of emulating itself.
anything to do with memory, especially video memory, is greatly enhanced by second level address translation. So if you're doing anything to do with giant databases or any kind of graphics usage on a virtual machine,
slat is generally a good thing to have engine around. It does have different names on different platforms. Intel refers to it as our V I rapid virtual ization indexing, I believe or extended page tables. E P T. Is the most common one that people have heard off before, if you have heard of it,
but they've what they've done now is they've stopped using our V i n e pt, and they just call it
slat. Well, they are. They're trying to, anyway,
a M d causes called There's nested page tables. Eso there. That's what they refer to you. So you leave the here generally, if you do hear one of the older names you're here, there's something to do with page tables or paging along those lines, nested page tables or extended page tables.
That's where you're kind of your head of the
If you're gonna hear a different name,
that's where you're gonna hear it.
Uh, in terms of the rial Harbor Quinn. So I did say the minimum hardware requirements are nowhere close to being ready to be used in an actual environment in a in a professional environment, the real hardware environments. This is what I think personally, a minimum of two CPU course, preferably four or six,
if you can,
at a minimum, because one single 1.4 gigahertz CPU is gonna have serious trouble running more than one operating system
until course today have. If you do have an Intel processor in your machine, I don't know how what kind of levels we might have in there in the chat room here. But hyper threading is something that is built into Intel cause today in the last oh, God,
decade Maur hope threading has been around. It means that one physical core can act as to what it does is. It's almost like if you've got two lanes of on a highway off cars, the cars, if they're trying to merge into one lane rather than just kind of jamming up going No, I want to go first. No, I want to go first.
They all kind of zip her into each other and just turn into what hyper threading does that allows to threats to go into one physical core and be handed out a lot quicker
because it uses a different off time clocks effectively as it's going through a m. D don't have this. Only intel do. Unfortunately,
I would recommend about eight gigabytes of Ram. I know the minimum was half a gig. You're not gonna run a lot on half a gig? No, even Windows 10 will run properly on half a game anymore.
About 300 giggle. More hard disk space. You need space for those virtual machines. Andi. It basically means that you you need to have space to store the PM's the virtual hard disks, the configuration settings wth E. If you replicate them.
If you migrate them over, you need to pace of space tow, have the virtual
paging files and things like that. These are what I call them, what I put on the screen there really life requirements. They're not the actual minimum. But then what I would say you need at a minimum in order to be able to do anything serious with hyper V.
So it's not too much to ask. In this day and age, I would say most machines you purchase now come with at least a gig of RAM on dhe. Nowadays, with space being so cheap, a terabyte hard disk isn't hard to get. Hold off if you're gonna run something a bit quicker, like an SST. Even those now we're coming up to like
like half a terror by some of them are still terabytes. They're expensive,
but they are. They're on dhe CPU, cause I think I'm I'm running an ice 7 77 100 on this one on. I bought this
about no more than a year ago now, so you know, I even I'm behind the times with my gaming machine, but it's still handles hyper V without a problem. So anything you bought kind of semi recently should be absolutely fine with this.
