    Fedora 28


    I have Hyper-V installed and Ubuntu 18.o4 installed and hope to try out the changes for full screen.
    My question is does Fedora work with Hyper-V

    Any linux distro will work but usually need to install as a generation 1 VM.

    With 18.04, you can now use enhanced mode which allows you to use whatever screen resolution you set.

    Just an observation here.....but with linux distros....what's the point of running them in a VM when you run them live from a DVD or USB flash drive....with the full use of all the systems hardware. Unless the VM is open with in your current session of windows and you can just shut down the VM and continue in windows.

    When you run from a flash drive, it is not "persistent" by default i.e. the session is not saved - particularly if a dvd drive. Not all distros allow you to make session permanent.

    Of course, you cannot run windows simultaneously either. Hyper-V is a bit different from other vms as it does have access to host hardware.

    Hi there
    Running from a live distro isn't the same by any means as running from a VM

    just a few simple reasons here

    1) you can run concurrent VM's of the same or different OS'es

    2) You still have your HOST running --that could be Windows or whatever

    3) you can have other users to be able to access your VM's without needing an account on your HOST (probably Windows) system

    4) no need for dual booting etc

    5) easy to share files and data with Host and VM's and also between the VM's themselves.

    6) VM's will almost certainly run on different hardware without change so they can be moved or copied at will. This might not be true if running VM's on HYPER-V - it will depend on the degree of direct hardware access needed - but for people using VMWARE or VBOX copying VM's to different machines is not normally a problem.

    Important for Windows VM's - When moving / copying the VM to another machine and running VMWARE at the first boot of the VM answer I MOVED IT to the question not I COPIED IT. This will preserve the Windows activation.

    There's actually no guarantee that a Live distro will even boot on some machines without a bit of fiddling around with kernel parameters and getting Internet access is not always a given especially if unbranded Wifi chips are involved.

    Note you can of course have the VM's installed on removable media - a decent way is to have them on an external SSD connected to a PC via a USB3-->sata connector or direct sata, connector if you have a port available

    A live system / distro is a useful tool if something breaks on the host system or for attempting data retrieval from corrupted disks -- or if you just want to test using actual hardware --personally the only time I ever need a live distro boot is to recover data / format or re-partition HDD's (and SDD's).

    Cheers
