Windows 10 Deployment and Management Lab Kit system requirements

The lab supports the 64-bit editions of Windows 10 RTM and Windows Server 2012 R2. It must be imported to set up a lab once Hyper-V is installed.

The Hyper-V Host on which the Windows 10 PoC Lab needs to be imported must meet the following minimum specifications:

  • Hyper-V role installed
  • Administrative rights on the device
  • 300 gigabytes of free disk space
  • High-throughput disk subsystem
  • 32 gigabytes of available memory

  • An External virtual switch in Hyper-V connecting to the external adapter of the host machine for internet connectivity named External 2
  • A Private virtual switch in Hyper-V for private connectivity between the virtual machines named HYD-Corpnet

The required hardware will vary based on the scale of the provisioned lab and the physical resources assigned to each virtual machine.

Lab expires December 8, 2016. A new version will be published prior to expiration.

Things to Know

This lab kit contains evaluation software that is designed for IT professionals interested in evaluating Windows 10 deployment and management products and tools on behalf of their organization. We do not recommend that you install this evaluation if you are not an IT professional or are not professionally managing corporate networks or devices. Additionally, the lab environment is intended for evaluation purposes only. It is a standalone virtual environment and should not be used or connected to your production environment.

    Several of the step by step lab guides appear to be missing pages as there are gaps in the step numbers. I’ve found at least three that way, numbers 2, 3, and 4….Can someone check these and post the complete versions somewhere?
