I've successfully (at last) installed Fedora 19 on a Hyper-V server (Windows 2008 R2).

Note: Do NOT select the checkbox: "Migrate to a physical computer with a different processor version" This set our Hyper-V server on a reboot loop, I had to pull the data partitions and set all hyperv services to manual start to resolve.

I've found some info on setting up the Hyper-V integration, which would be pretty neat, time-sync, mouse integration, heartbeat, blah... But, nothing in the fedora forums about it.

Does anyone have any experience with running HyperV and Fedora? The packages M$ provide support RHEL 5.7, 5.8, 6.012, 6.3 only and fail dependencies.

Happy for your comments/help.

Happy fedora-ing!

AFAIK, MS officially supports only CentOS/RHEL/SuSE and Ubuntu LTS [1], guest integration packages are only provided on those platforms.

I'm not 100% sure, but the draft doc at [2] states that Fedora 18 is supported.

You could also try to rebuild the RHEL's SRPM provided in [2] on a Fedora host.
