    Yep - need to be on 1803.
    You should add and introduction to your post, and list all requirements.


    EDIT: I see the requirements are there already. :)

    Overall, this is a really good post/guide.

    Update on #9: I confirm after upgrading to Windows 1803, Set-VM does have the -EnhancedSessionTransportType parameter.

    Copy & Paste and Shared Folders/Drives work. Performance seems OK too.

    It wasn't clear to me about disabling the printers and setting up the shared folders/drives so maybe this clarification helps.

    When starting the Connection , the Default Tab is "Display" where the desktop resolution can be specified.
    Towards the bottom left use
    Show options
    .
    An option to
    Save my settings for future connections to this virtual machine
    appears. It's probably most useful to enable this to save having to specify the configuration every time you connect.
    See also the
    Local Resources
    tab is available.
    Select Local Resources and un-check Printers.
    Click More and select the Drives you want to access from Ubuntu.
    Click Connect
    Login with Session: Xorg and your Ubuntu account credentials.
    The local resources (e.g. Drives) are mounted on ~/shared-drives

    Whilst I don't want to add to a debate on this thread about comparing hypervisors performance and features I will pass on my observation encourage checking out the configuration above in this thread with Windows Pro 1803, Hyper-V and Ubuntu 18.04.

    Having used Ubuntu 16.04 on Windows using VirtualBox and VMware, when comparing the performance and integration features (clipboard and shared folders) with Hyper-V prior to Windows 1803, yes Hyper-V was disappointing. Now, having made the upgrade to 1803 and followed the instructions in this thread then personally I don't see a big difference.

    If anyone is considering the Ubuntu 18.04 on Hyper-V then so long as you have Windows 1803 or above then I'd say it's well worth considering now.

    I updated text to make it clearer. Only shame is no audio support. I see lots of articles saying why it cannot be done in Hyper-V but take the view if virtualbox or vmware can do it, why not Hyper-V?

    I feel the same, but the reason must be that Hyper-V maybe was not designed to be run as a virtual platform for running full desktop experiences. It's more of a system and server administration thingie.

    Sure, but I cannot help thinking it must be possible if MS put their mind to it. There is not a lot of point of enabling enhanced mode without the key feature not enabled.

    @cereberus -

    Very useful thread. I do hope that MS enhances the Hyper-V product for a better desktop experience.
    Virtualization is a blessing in the right hands. Is the process the same on Mint?

    Cheers! :)

    I'd assume so - the Hyper-V drivers have been in Linux Kernel for 10 years or so. I think since Windows 8 was released although perhaps earlier. I've been running Arch as a VM since then (I run my torrent client in it).

    I never tried in that time to do audio so whether it works idk. Presumably not judging by this thread.

    What I'd like to do (which I tried and failed to do) is native boot (any) Linux in a VHD. That would be wonderful if it was possible.

    It is sort of halfway but you can boot linux in a vhd using grub but I would love to do it with standard windows bcdboot commands. I cannot believe tht some bright spark has not sussed a way for linux to fool the windows boot loader into thinking it is loading Windows.

    I'm not sure if I understood correctly, but is step 4 in this article what you mean Martin?
