I'm looking for some advice. I'm running windows 7 ultimate x64 on a quad core 8 GB workstation. I would like to run some type of virtualization software for MCITP study that would allow me to run server 2008, exchange 2010 and a couple of workstations. The only software I found that runs on my OS seems to be VMware Desktop but I'm leary of the $200 price tag. A few of the techs I work with are telling me to buy another system and install server 2008 and run hyper V. I would prefer not to buy new hardware if I can get around it. Thanks..
I don't think there is a free virtiulization program for Windows 7 you can use to install Server on. But the older Virtual PC 2007 does work with Server 2008 as the guest OS, but it needs Vista or older.
