In the "COM 1" and "COM 2" sections, you can connect a virtual COM port to a named pipe.
However, natively, it isn't possible to connect a virtual COM port to a physical COM port.
For Generation 1 virtual machines, you will be able to use a virtual floppy file in "vfd" format if you wish.
In the "Name" section, you will be able to change the name of the virtual machine, as well as add notes about it.
In the "Integration Services" section, you will be able to configure the integration services that you have previously installed in the guest operating system.
The integration services available are :
For more information about Hyper-V integration services, refer to "Hyper-V Integration Services" page on Microsoft Docs.
With the "Snapshot File Location" (or Checkpoint File Location) option, you can choose where Hyper-V will store the snapshots (or checkpoints) of this virtual machine.
On Windows Server 2016, this section has been renamed "Checkpoints", because several options have been added there.
To start, you will have the possibility to enable or not the use of checkpoints (snapshots), but also to choose which type of checkpoints should be used :
As you can see, by default your new virtual machines are configured to create production checkpoints (if possible) or standard checkpoints (if not).
This makes it possible to favor the use of new production checkpoints to maintain data consistency as much as possible for the applications that run in the virtual machine concerned.

Here, you will be able to choose where to store the smart paging file for this virtual machine.
The smart paging file corresponds to a virtual memory file that will be used temporarily as random access memory by the virtual machine.
This file is temporarily created on the server's hard disk and is usually used when the virtual machine is restarted and when the Hyper-V server cann't allocate the amount of RAM that it needs to restart.
The "Automatic Start Action" option allows you to choose whether Hyper-V should automatically start this virtual machine when the server finishes booting.
The available values are :
You will also be able to choose the boot time for this virtual machine. Which is useful when one virtual machine depends on another. For example, if you have a virtualized DNS or Active Directory server that is required for the other virtual machines to function properly.
This option is similar to the previous one, except that it concerns the shutdown of the server.
You will have the possibility :
