Install Ubuntu 12.04 on Hyper-V

Some months ago I made a blog entry about “Install CentOS on Windows 8 Hyper-V“. Now with the new Linux kernel 3.0 the Hyper-V Integration Components are integrated in the kernel. Now Ubuntu 12.04 will be based on the new Linux kernel and this is why it should run perfectly on Microsoft Hyper-V.

  1. Download Ubuntu on Ubuntu.com. Until 12.04 is released you can download the daily builds from here.
  2. Start the Hyper-V Manager and create a new Virtual Machine
  3. Install Ubuntu 12.04
    Hyper-V Ubuntu 12.04
  4. after the Installation everything should work fine 🙂
