Is there a way (now or in the future) to install ubuntu-server-64 on a Microsoft Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V?

I tried this quide: but you're never sure if ubuntu starts or not and if it's up and running the network fails after a very short time.

up and running - thank you! PS: This works only with the server-version. If you need the desktop-version - you have to install the server first then apt-get install ubuntu-dekstop. PPS: To gain mouse-access you should install teamviewer and start it with alt-f2 – Sven Oct 18 '10 at 16:49
