This is Part 3 of my blog regarding BDM we will go through setting up a HyperV virtual machine template to boot from ISO.

A few important things to note-

-    Currently with PVS and HyperV we must use the Emulated(legacy) NIC for pvs to work. You do have the option of setting up a private virtual network for PVS and assigning the legacy NIC to this private network. Then you can assign your Virtual Machine a Synthetic NIC for all other traffic.  For most situations using the legacy nic should provide you enough throughput for pvs (100Full)and normal operation but if not you can add the 2nd synthetic nic(1GB).

*Even though we are not using PXE boot it still requires PXE be enabled so UNDI gets loaded early in the boot process.  
-       If you have not read the previous parts to this blog and created your ISO I would look at this first.

1.       We will start by going into SVMM and add our legacy NIC.

a.       Right Click on your XP Virtual Machine and choose Properties and then click on the Hardware Configuration Tab.

b.      Click on Network Adapter>Emulated network Adapter as shown below.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2.       Now as you see below we have our Legacy NIC installed.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
3. Now we set our XP Virtual Machine to boot from the ISO file(PVS bootstrap) See screen capture below.
Click on the Bus Configuration>Virtual DVD

Choose existing image file and browse to the ISO file.




















4.  Under Hardware Properties>Hardware Profile>Bios … Set your startup order so CD is first and PXE Boot is second as shown below.

*Even though we are not using PXE boot it still requires PXE be enabled so UNDI gets loaded early in the boot process.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 5.  You now should be able to boot your Virtual Machine up and connect to your PVS vdisk with out PXE booting.
