The Install Hyper-V and Fedora Linux Workstation module provides you with the instruction and devices to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Install Hyper-V Feature
  • Install a Fedora Linux Virtual Machine
  • Configuring Initial Setup of a Fedora Linux Virtual Machine

Lab Objectives

The following exam objectives are covered in this lab.

  • IC3-GS5: Computing Fundamentals, Computer Software Architecture.

Exercise 1 - Install Hyper-V Feature

Hyper-V is a machine virtualization platform from Microsoft that enables you to install and run multiple 32-bit or 64-bit OS in parallel on the same machine. This enables you to work on various OS without having to invest in expensive computer hardware. In addition, you can use Hyper-V to install and test virtual machines of various configurations without affecting the functionality of other virtual or physical machines.

For Hyper-V service to run in Windows 8.x, the computer hardware must have a 64-bit processor that supports second level address translation (SLAT), at least 4 GB of system memory and BIOS-level virtualization support. You can verify with your system vendor to find out if your computer can run this virtualization platform.

To be able to see the pre-installation phase of Windows, you will use Hyper-V as this gives you access to the entire installation process.

Exercise 2 - Install a Fedora Linux Virtual Machine

Linux is a Unix-like operating system that was created under the model of free and open source software development. Installing or using Linux does not call for any license as it can be installed on a wide range of computing devices, including the computer and various mobile devices. Fedora is one of the popular Linux distribution.

In this exercise, you will perform a complete install of the Fedora 14 operating system. You will be working on the following equipment to carry out the steps for the exercise:

  • PLABWINBUILD (Build Server)

Exercise 3 - Configuring Initial Setup of a Fedora Linux Virtual Machine

After installing the Fedora OS, you configure it by specifying the locale of the machine on which the OS is installed, specifying language and keyboard strokes preference, creating user accounts to login, and many more parameters. In this exercise, you will configure the initial setup and root user login on the Fedora OS.
