Question

Does anybody have first hand experience with the Windows 8 future Hyper-V V3?

Which device, CPU, Chipset and BIOS Version did you use? 

 

My System: ThinkPad X200s CPU SL9400 BIOS 3.20 (all VTs are enabled)

 

I'm not able to use the Hyper-V future ( SLAT is not available on the CPU).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer

 

To use Hyper-V on Windows 8 Client Developer Preview, you need SLAT, which is supported by "Any Intel CPUs based on Nehalem, Westmere, or Sandybridge micro-architectures.".  The X200s's SL9400 is a Core micro-architecture CPU. Nehalem appeared in the X201.

So, based on information currently available, the X200s may not support this.
