Thanks to my friend Hans Bellen from UMT and the Microsoft Virtualization Team – we have the final solution for your issues:
Running Windows 2008 R2 w/ Hyper-V on Core i3/i5/i7 CPU and performance graphic card with WDDM driver installed. After Hyper-v is started the machine bluescreens.
- Disable the Intel Turbo Boost in the BIOS or in the Windows 2008R2 if you are dual-booting or the option is not available in the BIOS. To disable the Turbo Boost in Windows Server 2008 R2 – open Device Manager, locate Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology Driver, disable it.
- Get the Windows 2008 R2 SP1 – now available in Beta here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/ff183870.aspx
10/20/10 – UPDATE
I just have been setting up the Lenovo T410 for the Hands-on Lab for our upcoming Barcelona event and here is some learning:
- After native nVidia driver from Lenovo site was installed the machine constantly blue screened with Hyper-v enabled even with the “Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology Driver” disabled
- Installing SP1 did fix the problem and I’m running my VM and multi-monitor config successfully now
- Small trick I learned – once you install the nVidia driver you are not able to see anything on the screen or the machine blue screens (nvlddmkm.sys) when booted – to recover – just disable the virtualization in the BIOS and reboot. As Hypervisor service will not run the machine will behave ok and it gives you chance to install SP1
