Before creating a virtual machine, you must put the ISO file into any network folder that is accessible to the server with the hypervisor. If you are opening the Microsoft Hyper-V Manager console on the same server where the hypervisor is installed, you can put the ISO file on the local hard disk.

To create a virtual machine:

  1. Open the Microsoft Hyper-V Manager management console.
  2. In the left part of the window, select the hypervisor which you want to connect to and deploy the virtual machine image.
  3. In the context menu, select NewVirtual Machine.

    The Virtual Machine Creation Wizard opens.

  4. Follow the steps of the wizard:
    1. Select the name and location of the virtual machine.
    2. Select the generation of the virtual machine.
    3. Allocate memory for the virtual machine.
    4. Configure the network connection.
    5. Connect a virtual hard disk.
    6. Select the operating system installation method.
    7. Confirm the creation of the virtual machine.

The virtual machine is created with the specified settings. Make sure the virtual machine is displayed in the Virtual Machines list on the selected hypervisor.

The virtual machine is created with the default number of CPUs. You must modify this setting in virtual machine properties after it is created.
