We have been using FOG installed on Ubuntu to image computers and have now started creating an image as a Hyper-V virtual machine (an image created as a virtual machine was a recommendation to us, and we are running Hyper-V hosts so we created it as a Hyper-V virtual).
We are having trouble getting the kernel that FOG is using to read the hard drive of the virtual (and it won't pass the Disk check of FOG's Compatibility test), so we assume that the drivers in the kernel don't support what the Hyper-V virtual uses.
We have now tried to compile a new kernel (3.10) using the
.Config file that FOG supplies and the command
sudo make xconfig which brings up a Kernel Configurator, but where it says
Microsoft Hyper-V guest support there is no tickbox next to it to include it in the kernel? Have tried ticking
Virtualization Drivers and
Virtualization, and then compiled the kernel, but it hasn't seemed to fix our problem. We are trying to do this on an installation of Ubuntu 12.04.
Does anyone know how to include Hyper-V support in the kernel, and whether or not it will actually be a solution for our problem? Any other ideas?
Please bare in mind, we do not know much about Linux/Unix operating systems and have never compiled a kernel before.
