Installing Fedora 9 in a Hyper-V VM
In my last post, I said I’d be posting last week. Sorry for the late appearance of this post, but I was pre-occupied with some other tasks.
Anyway, Sean over at The Sean Blog has posted an article about getting Fedora 9 working in Virtual PC, so I thought I'd post one about installing it in Hyper-V.
So, for those of you playing along at home, here are the exceedingly complicated instructions. I hope they're easy to understand.
- Create a VM.
- Open the Settings for that VM. Add a Legacy Network Adapter, and mount the Fedora 9 ISO in the VM's DVD drive. Apply the changes.
- Start the VM and install Fedora 9. The default settings should work, unless you're advanced...
- There is no step 4.
No, seriously. It's that easy. I installed the x86-64 version under Hyper-V RC1 the other day, and it was just that simple.
