Install Ubuntu 7.10 on Hyper-V
In my previous post about installing Ubuntu on Hyper-V, I mentioned that while Ubuntu 6.06 installs on Hyper-V, Ubuntu 7.10 does not. This problem can be solved by applying a patch on Ubuntu 7.10 installation ISO. You can download this patch from here. It is a small executable that looks for Ubuntu 7.10 installation ISO files in the current directory, and if found, applies the patch to them. Simple enough.
Once the patch applied, I was able to Install Ubuntu 7.10 on Hyper-V (Server edition with LAMP) without any problems. Better yet, the Hyper-V console worked fine during and after installation without any graphics related issue.
Of course, the server edition of Ubuntu does not install a GUI and it boots into console mode, but even the console of version 6.06 did not work properly on Hyper-V.
Now that Ubuntu is up and running, I have to figure out how to install Webmin on it. Also, does it come with IP Table enabled by default?
