The webbernetz are abuzz with news that a new version of Ubuntu has been released today.  As such, I figured that I should post instructions on how to get it going under Hyper-V.

Now, I know that these steps are pretty complex, so I'll try to use as much detail as I can when writing them out.

Step 1.  Download the ISO for Ubuntu.
Step 2.  Create a VM and attach the ISO to it.  Use a Legacy Network Adapter if you need network access.
Step 3.  Turn the VM on.
Step 4.  Follow the on-screen instructions.

That's it.  It works right "out of the box", so to speak. 

Enjoy!
