I know I can use my Windows 7 OEM license to activate if I install as a Hyper-V guest on the laptop that the license is for, but what about using VMware Workstation? Is the inability to activate...

Even administrative accounts in Windows run to some degree under least privilege. Try running "powercfg -h off" in a non-elevated command prompt and see what happens.

I've used Hyper-V on W8CP for a few weeks, with W8CP as a bare-metal install on my HP ProBook 4430s (80GB SSD, 320GB WD Scorpio Blue, 16GB RAM). Overall, I have to say that Hyper-V 3.0 as implimented...

Regarding Hyper-V, the answer varies. On Win2k8 and Win8, once you enable Hyper-V and reboot, the hypervisor loads befor the OS. Using Hyper-V Server 2k8 or any other bare-metal hypervisor, you would...

See, I think that for what he wants, if he's going to use Windows 8, Hyper-V would be a great choice, since it's already there on the client OS, and since he's likely not going to need anything other...

VMWare Workstation is a great product. However, it would be a really poor choice for hosting guests that someone would connect to via RDP. This is because it's not a true, bare-metal hypervisor....

Unless you have an enterprise class hypervisor, you may have issues with this. You may want to think of using Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 (free), and virtualising Windows 7 over that.

I'm surprised that Virtual PC allowed an install of Windows 2008 R2, as R2 is x64, which isn't supposed to be supported by Virtual PC. I may have to test that out in a VM.
