PVS streamed Win2012R2 /Win7 and NIC fail over.

In this video I am trying to show how NIC speed varies for windows 2012R2 vs Win7. As you know , HyperV support PXE on legacy nic at the speed of 100MB. Streaming VM’s over 100MB would be really challenging .  Windows 2012R2 VM does fail over the network from legacy NIC to Synthetic NIC as shown over the video whereas Windows7 only use synthetic nic for VM traffic and streaming continue over legacy network. In this video, I tried copying file to PVS streamed  windows 7 and all the activity happening over synthetic NIC whereas streaming continue over legacy NIC.
