VM Templates – [PART 1] – Create a New Windows 8 VM in Hyper-V

In this blog post series, I will show you how to create a new Virtual Machine template so that we can use it to deploy new Virtual Machines quickly when we need them. The template will have all the needed apps installed in it; when we create new VMs based on this template, all the apps will come pre-installed. This will save a lot of deployment time.
