The webbernetz are abuzz with news that a new version of Ubuntu has been released today. As such, I figured that I should post instructions on how to get it going under Hyper-V.
Now, I know that these steps are pretty complex, so I'll try to use as much detail as I can when writing them out.
Step 1. Download the ISO for Ubuntu.
Step 2. Create a VM and attach the ISO to it. Use a Legacy Network Adapter if you need network access.
Step 3. Turn the VM on.
Step 4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
That's it. It works right "out of the box", so to speak.
