Microsoft has released an updated version of their planning and deployment guide for Hyper-V:
“This guide includes information about hardware requirements and limits, supported guest operating systems, and instructions for installing the role and management tools. It also includes information about configuring security, network, and storage for the Hyper-V role”.
You might want to also read my introduction to Hyper-V if this technology is new to you. That covers the terminology, the architecture and the theory of machine virtualisation and Hyper-V. I’ve started to write a guide on installing and configuring Hyper-V. That’s stalled temporarily until this current glut of speaking I’m on is over – probably in May.
