You can use OpenSUSE on Hyper-V with 4 vCPU.

1) Install a clean OpenSUSE 11.3

2) Do following:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
zyyper update
zypper install gcc gcc-c++ make autogen autoconf kernel-source
wget -c http://yusufozturk.info/linux/kernel-2.6.36-hyperv-opensuse.x86_64.rpm
zypper install kernel-2.6.36-hyperv-opensuse.x86_64.rpm
cd /boot
mkinitrd
zypper install nano
nano /grub/menu.lst

In the menu.lst, copy these lines:

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
title Desktop -- openSUSE 11.3 - 2.6.34.7-0.5
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Virtual_HD.. (full path!)
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop

and past under it like below:

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: hyperv###
title Desktop -- openSUSE 11.3 - 2.6.36-hyperv
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.36-hyperv root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Virtual_HD.. (full path!)
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.36-hyperv

So your menu.lst should be like this:

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
title Desktop -- openSUSE 11.3 - 2.6.34.7-0.5
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Virtual_HD... (full path!)
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop
 
###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: hyperv###
title Desktop -- openSUSE 11.3 - 2.6.36-hyperv
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.36-hyperv root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Virtual_HD.. (full path!)
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.36-hyperv
 
###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: failsafe###
title Failsafe -- openSUSE 11.3 - 2.6.34.7-0.5
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Virtual_HD.. (full path!)
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop

That’s it. Reboot your server with new kernel. Now you can use synthetic ethernet and 4 vCPU.
Please careful to (full path!) lines, I trim full paths. You should copy full paths from your existing menu.lst source.

Also integrated shutdown is available:

You can use CPU stress tool for tests.
