Run DietPi on Hyper-V Server?

Post by ComputerKid »

Hi,

This may sound like a daft question, but what is the best/easiest way to get a Hyper-V image for DietPi.

I have a Windows Server running Hyper-V with a few VMs already spinning, and I'd really like to get DietPi set up running as a lightweight download server (Deluge, Sonarr, Radarr & Jackett).

I have tried the usual conversion tools but none of these seem to work properly. I have also tried the the boot method to install the barebones image into a VM, but I couldn't get the VM to boot from a USB drive to do the install. Are you likely to release a Hyper-V image along side Virtual Box and VMware?

I'd appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction to get this running.

Thanks muchly!

Computerkid.

Hi,

One of our users/contributors managed to get the VirtualBox image to convert to Hyper-V:
http://www.sytone.com/2017/07/getting-a ... n-hyper-v/

The only difference will be version number, change accordingly:
DietPi_v120_VirtualBox-x86_64-(Jessie)

I lack any spare x86_64 systems to install Windows Server + Hyper-V at the moment. If one becomes available, i'll investigate creating a Hyper-V ready image.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

Hi!

That's great, thanks for the very fast response and this information - I'll give it a bash!

Fingers crossed you can get some spare kit to roll out an official Hyper-V VM soon. I tried out your OS & apps in Virtual Box on my laptop and I'm really impressed!! I can't wait to get it running permanently on my server.

Thanks again!

Adding to this :
Sytone's blog - Getting a DietPi image running on Hyper-V
GitHub issue #804 - DietPi Image | HyperV

Unfortunately the conversion (Either from the VirtualBox or VMWare image) results in UUID mismatch- can't run man fstab too.




NB : Aside from installing full distro and running the DietPi script, you can also import this bloated copy

I have a newer Hyper-V image here, build up from scratch. Didn't test it much but ran good so far. Was made on hyper V as well natively. I can provide link by email e.g. hmm we don't have pm function here right?

My linked image was also a Debian + PREP_SYSTEM_FOR_DIETPI.sh dated March 26th 2018. But while having nothing installed, it ended up at 626 MBytes (The drive was set at 12 GB).

I think the ideal distribution method would either be Torrent or Google Drive link. If your image came out better / smaller than mine, I don't mind hosting them on my Google Drive account / create a new torrent for it.
