we are doing an install and the wrong memory for the hyper-v host was ordered and it wont be here for another day 😦

now the host has only 4gb ram and we need to install SBS 2008 as a guest vm… and if you dont know this needs 4 gb ram to install and will stop if you dont have 4 gb ram!

with dynamic memory i set the start up ram to 2 with a max running of 4gb and hey presto out of a hole!
