I'm a newbie in Hyper-V / Virtualization. I'm trying to explore the Hyper-V feature that came bundled with Windows 8.1. On reading some online tutorials, here what I discovered about Hyper-V.
- Hyper-V is a type-1 hypervisor that is available in Windows 8 / 8.1.
- Though it is type-1, it is used as type-2 since we bring-up the Hyper-V mgmt console to control / spawn the VMs.
Now my doubt is, Since Hyper-V is claimed to be a type-1 hypervisor, wouldn't it be possible to directly boot into one of the Hyper-V VMs, without the need for the host OS (i.e Windows 8.1) to boot completely.
The reason for my query is, if host OS is there, i.e only the necessary hypervisor services are there, then I can provide some little more extra resources to the guest OS.
Advance thanks in answering this newbie's query.
