Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V MDT 2013 Deployment Comparing Gen1 to Gen2 Legacy/Synthetic Network Boot
Having fun on a Saturday, recorded this nice benchmark showing the improvements booting from the network between Hyper-V Gen1 VMs w/Legacy vs. Gen2 VMs w/Synthetic. For more details, check out Aidan’s blog (http://www.aidanfinn.com/?p=14913) or Technet for more details on Gen2 VMs.
The Gen1 w/Legacy took about 11 minutes end to end while the Gen2 w/Synthetic finished in about 8 minutes.
