Ubuntu 12 is coming with Hyper-V drivers for the best integration and usability. Ubuntu 12 is still in Beta like Hyper-V v3 but results are promising. I’m posting some important screenshots from Ubuntu 12. You can also find benchmark results of new Ubuntu 12 on Hyper-V v3.
1. Ubuntu Login Screen and no “SMBus Base Address Uninitialized” warning anymore!
2. Ubuntu 12 recognizes Hyper-V synthetic network driver by default.
3. Let’s see installed Hyper-V modules.

In this post, I’ll talk about network operations on Windows Server 8 Beta. I have a virtual machine on my Hyper-V server with 4 virtual network adapter. They are all binded to same network, so I can set same ip addresses on them and I’m also able to make them teamed.
1. First of all, lets get network adapters.
I see all network adapters with some informations like name, description, ifindex and status.
2. I’ll get one of them and see full details.
Btw, you can also use wildcard (*) in your commands to make them easy.
As you see, both of them works as we expected.

You may not use Microsoft WebMatrix 2 Beta if your region format is not English. In that case you will probably see “index was outside the bounds of the array” when you try to edit files. I wrote a quick workaround in Powershell to solve this problem.
You should use this script to start WebMatrix 2 Beta. You can change shortcut path to execute this script as well.
Applied to: PowerShell v2, PowerShell v3

In this post, I’ll talk about disk operations on Windows Server 8 Beta. I have Windows 7 and Windows Server 8 Beta on a PC and I want to install Windows 8 Beta as well. I will resize my current Windows Server 8 partition and create a new partition for Windows 8 Beta. When I want to do this operation via Server Manager GUI (in case of you have Server 8 with GUI), I don’t see any option for “Shrink”. Maybe I’m looking to wrong section but here it is:
So lets do this operation via Powershell.
1. First of all lets get partition information.
2. My drive letter is W. So I can get detailed information.
3. Drive size is 373 Gb. I’ll resize it to 250 Gb.
