This article is for anyone wanting to install the NComputing NoTouch Center Appliance specifically on Microsoft HyperV 2016
Currently there are not screen shots but I will make sure and be descriptive and will reference relevant links mentioned.
How to get the NoTouch Appliance.
Follow the instructions or the following link to gain access and download the .OVA file we will use to create the NoTouch appliance.
Download the .OVA file to the desktop of the HyperV Manager system.
Since the .OVA is a compressed file, you will need to extract it using a software tool like 7Zzip.
Extract the .OVA to the desktop so it is easily found. This will create 3 new files on your desktop.
onvert the appropriate extracted file into the usable HyperV format.
For this example I used a free copy of Starwind V2V Below are my notes for this conversion.
