Want to update Hyper-V to RTM?

Here is what to do if you use Hyper-V RC0 or RC1 and want to update to Hyper-V RTM. I did this recently with my server.

  1. Apply the snapshot you want to take with you to RTM
  2. Start the virtual machine with this snapshot applied
  3. Shutdown your virtual machine
  4. Delete all Snapshots
  5. Wait for the merge to complete
  6. Uninstall the Hyper-V role with the Server Manager
  7. Logon to the server
  8. Wait for the Configuration Wizard to complete (it starts automatically)
  9. Apply the update details.aspx-FamilyId=F3AB3D4B-63C8-4424-A738-BADED34D24ED&displaylang=en
  10. Restart the server
  11. Logon to the server
  12. Add the Hyper-V role with the Server Manager
  13. Restart the server
  14. Wait for the Configuration Wizard to complete (it starts automatically)
  15. Your virtual machines should be there after the update
  16. Reconnect your virtual machines to the virtual network
  17. Start your virtual machines
  18. Insert the Integration Services Setup Disk and update the Integration Services
  19. Restart the virtual machine

Done.

By the way: I did not need to reactivate my virtual machines.
