The Release Candidate 1 (RC1) of Hyper-V is now available as a optional update on Windows Update.  Optional updates are not installed automatically by default.  To install the update open the Windows Update control panel and click “ View available updates ” under the “ Install Updates ” button.  Then check the Update for Windows Server 2008 (KB950049) and click install.


If you don’t see the update listed there could be a few reasons:
1)  You may find that you need to click the “ Check for Updates ” or “ Check online for updates from Windows Update
2)  Depending on how busy the Windows Update servers are it may take a few days to get pushed out to every server.
3)  If you have the HP Network Configuration Utility installed you should refer to KB950792 .


For additional information about RC1 see the previous Hyper-V RC1 Release Available on Microsoft Download Center! post.


Enjoy and Happy Virtualizing!
