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

ja brauchte richtig viel zeit :D
help!After all the settings,client says boot failure.(I already put the CD drive boot first)
Extremely helpful. Oh, one thing though – this is not true. Ubuntu shows “Device not ready” for Hyper-V network devices. What then? I’ve tried everything, and on multiple systems. Ubuntu does NOT work with Hyper-V “out of the box” as several people keep claiming – it just doesn’t. Prove me wrong?
Hi Rob :)
For me Ubuntu 12.04 does work on Hyper-V in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 just fine. No Problem, network gets detected even during installation.
I had no problems running Ubuntu 12.04 out of the box on Hyper-V
I am having the same problem with network connectivity running Ubuntu 12.04 in Hyper-v. I am at school and attempting this for a project using RSAT to remote into the server and install Ubuntu. Everything goes as planned until the installation starts there is no network connection to obtain updates during installation nor after the install has finished?? Any input would help.
Running into same issue with Server 2012 + Hyper-V trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 and it is not detecting my network. I have tried a legacy card as well, with no success.
tremendous article, wouldn’t have managed it without this.
