    Hey, just wondering if anyone has experience setting up the golden image using a virtual machine. Is it possible? Will it cause issues in the future?

    Thank you.

    • No, it is the opposite around; you should always create the golden (or reference) image in a VM, never on physical hardware. To make sure that the image never cause any kind of trouble it is important to have a neutral computer and a virtual machines is very neutral.

    Hi, This has been a great help in getting my bare metal deployment working so thank you, I have got one major issue though with my build.

    Did you have any trouble getting the bare metal deployed Hyper-V hosts with the Mounted VHDX as the system C:\ drive to be presentable in SCVMM 2012 R2? I am trying to add the CSV path to the cluster nodes with VMM but it will not show the VHDX system disk as a placement path.

    Cheers

    Sean

    • You don’t need to add the CSV path to the cluster, SCVMM will automatically do that for you when you build/configure the cluster. So, the answer is -No, it works out of the box.
