Install Windows 10 Technical Preview in Client Side Hyper-V 3.0 Generation 2

Microsoft just released the Windows 10 Technical Preview and I wanted to test it right away and I wondered if you could install the Windows 10 Technical Preview in Client Side Hyper-V 3.0 as Generation 2?  The answer is an easy yes.  There is nothing special you have to do and all the Integration Components were installed automatically.  The only things I did was give the virtual machine 1 GB of ram and limited the hard drive to 30 GB.  Please note that to do Generation 2 you have to install the x64 version of the Windows 10 Technical Preview.
