[Windows 7] NOT impressed so far…

So as I’m in the process of building my lab server I thought I’d build a Windows 7 machine to have a “play with”. So I downloaded the ISO and tried to create a new VM in Hyper-V. VM starts and I click “Install Now”.

Then I get the following message back:

“Windows could not collect information for [OSImage] since the specified image file [install.wim] does not exist”

Googling this seems to suggest that I need to burn the ISO to a CD and that MAY fix it. Hang on a minute what’s the point of having the ability to build a VM from an ISO image if you have to burn that ISO to a DVD/ CD, kind of defeats the object doesn’t it? I could understand it if this was an old OS but this is Microsoft’s latest and supposedly greatest (not in my opinion so far based on my experience).

So for now I’ll hold fire and wait until the next Beta comes out when HOPEFULLY they’ve fixed this.
