About This Video
VHD Native Boot, Presenter: Dan Stolts, Sr. IT Professional Evangelist

We’ll kick off by exploring VHD Native Boot, which is a new feature for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. VHD Native Boot can be used as the running operating system on designated hardware – without a parent operating system, virtual machine, or hypervisor. This is one of the best virtualization features to date for technology professionals of every kind – for business pros and consultants from enterprises to small and medium-size businesses.
