Hyper-V doesn't really have very good support for OS's that aren't from m$, but I believe SUSE and RedHat (of which CentOS ia a clone of), should work, although I'm not sure.

Have you installed the tools (I think Hyper-V calls them integration tools). They include drivers for the guest OS so it runs better.

The integration tool doesn't work under CentOS.

If it doesn't work under CentOS, then I'm afraid your out of luck. But I was under the impression that Red-Hat and SUSE were the only supported Linux Distro's under Hyper-V, and if that were the case also CentOS must run.

In that case you'll have to use another HyperVisor, like VMWare's ESXi, which is free.

You may install nomachine for free to access the GUI.
You can use networking as long as you use an emulated NIC.

access a TTY of the VM by redirecting CTRL + ALT + F1 to the VM.
then log in, ensure you have network support (ifconfig), copy the download location of the package, use the tool wget within centos: wget <download url> and install the package with rpm.

I have found a link related to install Centos in Hyper-V:

http://www.hyper-v-mart.com/Howto/Install_CentOS_5_VM_Step_by_Step.aspx

When I run setup.pl, it returns with error "command not found". Do you have any idea on this ?

As you are already logged in as root, don't use "sudo".

It comes out with permission issue. And I notify that the file size for setup.pl is 0.

Any idea ??

If I run the setup.pl directly, it come up with different error message "setup.pl: command not found"... Why does it generate different message ....

Why are you adding "driver"" after setup.pl? That probably isn't needed (but I don't know Hyper-V well enough, I usually use the better product, ESXi.....).

If I'm not mistaken, "pl" are Perl scripts, so you probably need perl installed in CentOS for setup.pl to run. Make sure Perl is installed.

Are you sure the setup.pl file is executable?

Yes, already use it to execute (X). When I execute it, no thing is started and no message is returned.
