Hyper V » Hyper-V » How to Use ISOs with Hyper-V 26 Jan 2016 by Eric Siron 9 It is possible to connect the host’s physical optical drive directly to a virtual machine for the purpose of loading operating systems and software, but, unless the host is right next to you, it’s not very practical. A guest is an operating system that runs on top of the virtual hardware. The operating system and processes that run the virtualized hardware are together called the host. Virtual hardware in the guest maps to specific resources on the host. Each virtual machine corresponds to a process on the host. We were able to run Ubuntu 14.04 with Hyper-V on Windows 8.1 — no special configuration required. Hyper-V has other useful features, too. For example, checkpoints work like snapshots in VirtualBox or VMware. You can create a checkpoint and then revert your guest operating system’s state to that state later. To run it in Hyper-V, we need an install process that is compatible with Hyper-V. Parallels and VMware both work with the macOS installer that can be obtained from Apple's Mac app store. Since my company uses Hyper-V primarily, I'm going to do some experimenting and figure out how to make this happen if it's possible.

Hyper-V supports several versions of Windows Server, Windows, and Linux distributions to run in virtual machines, as guest operating systems. This article covers supported Windows Server and Windows guest operating systems. For Linux and FreeBSD distributions, see Supported Linux and FreeBSD virtual machines for Hyper-V on Windows.

Some operating systems have the integration services built-in. Others require that you install or upgrade integration services as a separate step after you set up the operating system in the virtual machine. For more information, see the sections below and Integration Services.

How Microsoft provides support for guest operating systems

Microsoft provides support for guest operating systems in the following manner:

  • Issues found in Microsoft operating systems and in integration services are supported by Microsoft support.

  • For issues found in other operating systems that have been certified by the operating system vendor to run on Hyper-V, support is provided by the vendor.

  • For issues found in other operating systems, Microsoft submits the issue to the multi-vendor support community, TSANet.
