    Installing Ubuntu in VM using hyper-v


    Apologies for the very basic question, but this is my first attempt at creating a virtual machine within Windows 10 pro using hyper-v. I have created a VM, and during the process allocated a drive/folder for that VM, and selected the Linux iso file that should be installed. When I run the VM, it runs the install from the iso file, and gives several options for the install, the first of which is to create a new install, erasing all data from the existing hard drives.
    I'd just like confirmation, before I hit go, that the install will erase all data only from the VM drive/folder selected, and not my complete Windows 10 installation.

    :)

  2. Can I dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu on the same drive without partitioning

    That sounds like a much better option, or you can also use cygwin or something.

    Ubuntu in a VM
    such as
    Hyper-V
    is also an option if you need the actual OS.

    Unable to install fall creators update 1709

    Oh i see.

    I use Ubuntu on a VM.

    Windows 10 has Hyper-V so you can download Ubuntu and create a Ubuntu VM.

    More work yes, but i like it because it is more isolated too.

    Installing Ubuntu in VM using hyper-v

    As long as you are doing this in your Hypervisor, it will not affect your system at all. It's just your VHD(virtual hard disk) that gets formatted.

    I have less than minimum knowledge on Ubuntu.
    However, I have had some experience running Linux 17.2 "live CD" on my Windows 10 Home laptop.
    Insert the Live CD to the dvd drive to run Linux > remove CD to return to Win 10 Home.
    That simple.
    You can do exactly the same with a Live CD Ubuntu.
    You can mess up anyway you want while running Ubuntu and it won't affect your Windows 10 one bit.

    What's my point ?
    That you can save the trouble of creating a VM and installing Ubuntu/Linux into it.
    Just thought I would offer an alternative.
    Sorry if I have gone off topic.

    It will run rally slow. Get one of the lighter weight Distro's out there. It will still be Ubuntu, just a faster GuI.

    davidhk you can run Linux on a USB microSD card or stick. You need to use a Class 10 device.

    I run Ubuntu Mate on a Raspberry Pi 2 that is a Armv7 Quad 700mhz, 1 GB RAM. Makes for a nice test bench for playing with.

    Installing Ubuntu in VM using hyper-v

    When I ran Linux 17.2 in Live CD, it did not appear to be slow at all.

    However, Speed is relative.

    Thank you.
    I already have one installed on my DVD.
    It still works flawlessly, although I seldom "play" with it lately.

    I run Mint Mate in virtual and the performance is great. If it ran any faster, I would get whiplash.

    Mine ls Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon on a 3GHz Dell Optiplex Desktop and a 2GHz HP Notebook [both 64-bit] and have quite acceptable performance, in some instances better than Win7.

  14. If you created a VHD then yes, it can only be installed to that.

    Thanks for coming back to my original question, and I reckon it's been answered, that I won't trash my Windows 10 machine, only the Virual "hard drive" I've set up for the VM.
    Thanks for confirming that.
