Installing Ubuntu 11.04 Server on Microsoft Hyper-V

 In Ubuntu

Hi All

I had to install Ubuntu Server onto a Hyper-V virtual machine today.

I started off with version 10.04 using the instructions detailed here

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2010/10/21/installing-ubuntu-server-10-10-on-hyper-v.aspx

and it worked OK, other than the fact that it crashed at one point, it was hard to restart and gave a few storage errors on boot up. It may work for other people, but I decided that I wanted to try a newer version.

so I tried Ubuntu Server 11.04

ubuntu-logo14

also using the instructions detailed in Ben’s blog above.

This version went on without a hitch and I followed Ben’s instructions to the T.

as I am a fan of Ubuntu, and have tried REDHAT and SUSE under Hyper-V, which is more complicated, I’m glad I tried this. It worked very easily.

I can’t obviously take any credit for this. I’m simply stating that Ben’s instructions worked perfectly for 11.04, following ALL the steps detailed.
