In this post I will go thru the steps to configure the network for your Windows 8.1 Client Hyper-V. This is needed so your VM's can connect to the network.
1. Open your start screen and look for the Hyper-V Management Tools group. And click Hyper-V Manager
2. Click the Virtual Switch Manager option under Actions.
3. Because this is a new installation there is no network defined.
4. Type a name for your internal switch. In this example I use “Internal” as the name for the switch. Press OK.
Now you have your Hyper-V feature installed and network is configured. In my next post I will share how to configure a base virtual machine.
Are you ready to build your Client Hyper-V VM's?
