Hyper v role not available

I have just installed Windows Server 2008 Standard RC1, which I received as
a DVD from my Action Pack subscription, but I don't appear to have the Hyper
V role available to me when I go to add a role in Server Manager. Any ideas
why this might be the case? thanks.

Did you install the 64bit version?

KJ, thanks. My version (that came on the DVD) is 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1,
v.667, Build 6001. I can't find any reference to 64 bit, so I guess it must
be the 32 bit version. It could have been spelled out a little clearer. I
can see that when you down load the trial version it clearly shows which is
64 bit versus 32. Thanks again- I guess I'll go downloading.....

Re: Hyper v role not available

Don't settle for an RC version, get the 64-bit RTM for the latest
version of Hyper-V. Be warned that there is a bug in the current version. Do
not make any locale changes when you install the server, or the Hyper-V role
will not be available. (You can change locale settings after you enable the
hyper-v role).

Also note that this version does not support the domain controller role
on a system running hyper-v. Although it is the RTM version of Server 2008,
it is still an early beta version of Hyper-V. Hyper-V is scheduled for
release up to 180 days after server 2008 RTM.

Anytime. Get the download of RTM and you might need to enable your Servers
BIOS settings as described in the docs.

April Action Pack should have the RTM versions, or so I heard.
