Microsoft has released SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 and 7. One of the coolest feature Hyper-V got is the new Dynamic Memory allocation. This feature offers organizations to maximize thier use of memory resources by creating a memory pool that can be dynamically shared between virtual machines.

Do not be mistaken between this and Vmware memory overcommit, Dynamic memory sets a base start for memory and a maximum dynamic memory. The machine will start with the static memory always, but Hyper-V will be able to assign additional memory resource from the pool as needed by the machine and under the limit set on the max tab.

So first upload your image to Publicly Accessible URL and get the direct link till you see the .jpg extension

Then Copy the same Address (Again Make Sure u copy it from the HTTP till the .JPG then insert it into the URL and click connect
