    Buddy im sure you know the answer.. but if anyone else does or know this is true please let me know! :biggrin

    Is it true you can emulate a x64 OS VM on a 32 bit Host?

    Another thing i wanted to ask you is - Server 2008 has Hyper-V in some editions - if i understood this correctly will this be a version of Server 08 that you can directly install VM's on and it is not the full version of Server - thus eliminating a layer ie the Host OS?

    Not to my knowledge. you need the x64 hardware in order to utilise the x64 os in VMWare.

    I think I remember reading something in Phoenix's blog about his attempts with Exchange 2007 being x64 and he tried it on a 32bit PC and that not working....

    Since he's now in my part of the world (and time zone), he's probably still asleep. Only about 8:20 a.m. here. :wink:

    Hi mate, you seem to of answered your x64 x32 question, you just need a compatible processor

    as for Hyper V, it doesnt really remove the OS, it runs on top of 2008 Core which is a stripped down os footprint with limited attack surface, but the architecture of hyper-v is similar to Zens in context to how instructions are carried between child and parent partitions (guests and hosts) and this currently has some bottlenecks which are serious enough that they have been dropping features left right and center
