Windows 10: Hyper-V/Ubuntu 10.04 Installation/Error

    Hyper-V/Ubuntu 10.04 Installation/Error

    I recently purchased a Dell XPS 15, 9550, 6700HQ, W10P, 16Gig, non-touch, refurb computer. I re-partitioned the SSD drive, creating among other things drive 'R' of about 97 Gig. R was not reformatted - it is NTFS.

    Using another computer, I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04.LTS ISO to a thumb drive. I did not perform the verification steps on the downloaded file.

    I then installed/enabled Hyper-V in 'R' according to That appeared to go properly. I then installed Ubuntu, and that too appeared to go properly. So, I now have the following:

    R contains:

    in which the folders JOB and WindowsApps are empty. Virtual Machine -Ubuntu 10.04 contains the folders Virtual Hard Disks and Virtual Machines. Virtual hard Disks contains one file UBUNTU 10.04 VIRTUAL MACHINE Virtual Hard disk. Virtual Machines contains one folder and 2 files with system assigned names all beginning 4CA86814-BAD8-437D-A7c7-OE40A999...

    My hyper-V Manager screen shows:

    Then, in the Hyper-V Manager screen - on the right side under UBUNTU 10.04 VIRTUAL MACHINE I clicked 'connect...' which produced the unexpected (by me - you experts probably already know where I've gone wrong). Hmm, that's interesting - I'm unable to copy the window/screen to the clipboard and display it here. The screen is headed Hyper-V - subtitled: Virtual Machine Boot Summary. It says:

    1. SCSI DVD (0,1) The image's hash and certificates are not allowed (DB).
    2. Network Adaptor (00155D909800) DHCP failed.
    3. SCSI Disk (0,0) No UEFI-compatible file system was found.

    No operating system was loaded. Press a key to retry sequence...
    Note: Configuration changes may require the virtual machine to be reset.

    So, I ask and bless you priests of virtual realms to set me on the enlightened path to the door of entry.

    You have created a 2nd generation vm, emulating a UEFI based system. Extract from the tutorial:

    4.4) Select the vm generation. Generation 2 (GPT / UEFI) can only be used for 64 bit Windows 8 or later respective Windows Server 2012 or later guest operating systems. For all other guest systems use Generation 1 ​(MBR / BIOS). Click Next:
    Ubuntu needs and only runs on a 1st generation vm (legacy BIOS). Generation 1 is also the default when creating a new vm, in other words you have deliberately changed the vm generation to wrong one causing this issue.

    Thanks. I reinstalled it as you indicated - had to play with memory size allocations to get it started. Ubuntu is now running in my virtual machine. I'm a happy guy - probably gonna be a lot of confusion down my W10P/Virtual/Linux/Ubuntu road from being a casual XP user - gonna learn some CAD skills too.

    Thanks again
