apt-get install openssh-server (for ssh support)
apt-get install build-essential 
apt-get install ncurses-dev kernel-package fakeroot
apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
apt-get install linux-source-`uname -r | awk -F"-" '{print $1}'`
cd /usr/src
wget -c http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.36.tar.bz2
bzip2 -d linux-2.6.36.tar.bz2
tar xf linux-2.6.36.tar
cd linux-2.6.36
cp /boot/config* ./.config
make menuconfig

At menuconfig, go to:

Device Drivers -> Stagging Drivers

Now choose Microsoft Hyper-V Client Drivers

After that you can enter to exit with saving changes.

Use commands below to continue:
