Create Windows Nano Server Image Using Windows Server 2016 RTM

In this article I’ll show you how I create Windows Nano Server 2016 .VHD Image and load It to my Hyper-V host.

To start, I have copied the Nano Server folder from the Windows Server 2016 RTM ISO Image to my C:\

Using ISE I use the code below to create a Nano Server Image:

Import-Module c:\NanoServer\NanoServerImageGenerator

New-NanoServerImage -DeploymentType Guest -Edition Standard `

-MediaPath D:\ -BasePath .\Base `

-TargetPath .\NanoVM.vhdx -ComputerName NanoVM

Done, Now I have a Nano Server .VHD that I’ll load to my Hyper-V host.
