Hyper-V Server is a free version of Windows hypervisor that can be used to run virtual machines. In this guide, we’ll look at how to install and configure Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2019 (this guide also applies to Hyper-V Server 2019).

About Hyper-V

Hyper-V is available as a server role in Windows Server and as a stand-alone product (Hyper-V Server). Moreover, Hyper-V Server is free to install. However, before you begin the process of installing Hyper-V, make sure that your system meets all of the following requirements:

  • 64-bit processor with Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)
  • VM Monitor Mode Extensions
  • Minimum 4 GB of RAM
  • Hardware-assisted virtualization (Intel VT or AMD-V)
  • Hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention, with the NX bit for AMD systems or the XD bit for Intel systems
