If while trying out Windows Server “8” (now officially confirmed to be Windows Server 2012) you have stability issues and your Hyper-V server suddenly crashes you may need this Windows Hotfix.
The hotfix is specifically to fix the following:
- The Windows 8 Consumer Preview or Windows Server “8” Beta virtual machine stops responding.
- The Windows Server 2008 R2 host computer displays a stop error message and restarts automatically. This behavior brings down all other running virtual machines together with the host computer.
Definitely one to look at if you having a play with Sever “8” beta in a virtual machine!
