This is a follow up post to my several prior posts about both Hyper-V 2019 as an OS, using the Hyper-V hyper-visor for virtualization and my server hardware of choice the Dell R520. This post will act as both re-write and follow-up to my previous post about Hyper-V 2019. I'm going to just leave the … Continue reading Hyper-V 2019, on a R520

You can find the prior part (and eventual 3 or more parts) as well as any other advib-related entries under the advib tag.

I've been working on my hypothetical server - a hand-me-down Dell 2U server R520 to be specific - for at least 2 months now.
