How install UBUNTU on Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1


For an interop test with a customer of mine, I needed to install an UBUNTU on my Virtual Server. In order to achieve this reult, I found 2 main issues to address:



  • Virtual Server VGA implementation support up to 16 bit as pixel depth, while UBUNTU default is 24

  • Virtual Server emulates a PS/2 mouse while UBUNTU (and many other linux distributions) have a known bug in PS/2 implementation

As you easly understand from the company I work for 🙂 I’m not a really expert on Linux so, after a search here and there, I collected a bunch of information that allows me to succesfully install this OS.
