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.

  1. Create a VM.
  2. 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.
  3. Start the VM and install Fedora 9.  The default settings should work, unless you're advanced...
  4. 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.
