Trying to give something back to the Community...
Catching up on my blogs I was interested to read this post on John Baker’s blog about the availability about two VMs available FOC:
“Are you working with Hyper-V?? Want to save some time creating virtual machines? Then take a look at the Virtual Machine download site, there are two virtual machines available: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Server CORE installation and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Server FULL installation.”
Just make sure you read John’s comments about the lack of AV in these images and up-to-date patches, but even so these should save you a whole bunch of time so get downloading ;-)
