How to install AX2012R2 for Windows 8 Hyper V

Prerequisites

  1. PartnerSource Account
  2. Windows 8
  3. Hardware (processor and motherboard) can support Virtual Technology
  4. PartnerSource
  5. Hyper V

Setups

(a)   It requires a lot of resources. I had no troubles on my machine with the previous version, but this one immediately took all resources, including complete capacity of 4 processors (2.4 GHz).

(b)  Fortunately, killing SharePoint helped me to get to some normal numbers.
It’s also obvious that 6 GB of RAM (that successfully I used for the previous version) aren’t sufficient anymore – Microsoft recommends 16 GB.

Login to PartnerSource and land to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Solution Demos page
