A couple of weeks ago I posted about the fact that Windows Server 2012 R2 is not supported on top of Windows Server 2008 R2.
This generated a lot of feedback about the need to improve our documentation for which operating systems are supported on which versions of Hyper-V. So the Hyper-V documentation team has been busy at work. Specifically they have pulled the guest OS support information out of the current Hyper-V overview and split it into 2 topics:
- Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 supported guest operating systems – http://technet.microsoft.com/library/dn792027.aspx
- Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 supported guest operating systems – http://technet.microsoft.com/library/dn792028.aspx
They have also added a note about Windows Server 2012 being the last version of Windows that will be supported as a guest operating system on 2008 R2 to this topic: http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc794868.aspx
