I would like to install Ubuntu Server 18.104.22.168 LTS in Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V. However when I run the Ubuntu installation from the CDROM ISO, I get stopped by the error "Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted...".
I found some references to this problem maybe being a bug. I tried the following F6 parameters suggested by people experiencing this problem, but they did not work: -- ata_piix.prefer_ms_hyperv=0 -- reserve=0x1f0, 0x8
I have been installing Ubuntu Server in Hyper-V since Ubuntu 8.0.4 LTS without any "CD-ROM" installation issues. I'm not sure why version 22.214.171.124 no longer installs in Hyper-V.
Does anyone know how to install Ubuntu Server 126.96.36.199 LTS in Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V?

I was able to install Ubuntu 12.0.4 using the mini.iso from the following archive. However, I don't really consider this a solution because the procedure is technically not repeatable and I am not sure if I follow the same procedure a year from now I will get the same install or different versions. Repeatability is important to me since I install additional software into the system after Ubuntu is installed. http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/
