- Install Windows XP Service Pack 3 (Reboot required).
- Uninstall VS 2K5 R2 SP1 VM Additions.
- Install Hyper-V Integration Services.
There are a few others, but once the Integration Services are installed and configured, things go pretty smooth.
So far, with just a single core assigned to each VM running on the 1U Xeon X3230 based server we are noticing a pretty good performance increase. The OS is Server 2008 x64 Standard Core with Hyper-V RC0 installed and configured.
The out of the box Hyper-V would not work with the Intel NICs in this particular box. We needed to update right away.
