Hi everyone,


So, if i have windows server and I install a virtual machine on it with windows 7... Is there anyway to have that machine only show the windows 7 virtual machine normally? Like, I want to use the same machine as both windows server and windows 7 but I want to have the windows server part locked, if that makes sense. So, if someone comes over and wants to use my computer, they'll sit down and only windows 7 will pop up and ask them to log in and it'll have access to the server through the virtual machine based on whatever their user credentials are. Does that make sense? Like, I would only want them to use the virtual machine and not be able to minimize it and see/access the entire server? Is that feasible?


Thanks in advance.

Run both the server and the Windows 7 as Virtual machines. If you use something like hyper-V the machine will keep running even if your not connected via remote desktop.
