Installing Windows Home Server Code Name Vail on a Virtual Machine


- Advertisement -

If you don’t have spare hardware available to install the Windows Home Server Code Name Vail beta you can still try it out in a virtual machine.

Two of the best guides out there come from the How To Geek and from Nigel Wilks on

I was going to do my own post on this but it is so straightforward using either of the two guides above that I didn’t see the point in duplicating the effort.

I am running both “real” hardware for Vail and also virtual hardware, depending on what I am doing.

If you don’t have the beta for Windows Home Server Code Name Vail yet you should get it now from here.

Tim has also done a great video on installing Windows Home Server Code Name Vail you should check out too.
