    I downloaded the CentOS/cPanel 64bit iso and successfully installed it on VMWare Workstation so I know the iso isn't corrupted. I need to install it in Hyper-V (Windows Server 2008 Enterprise R2) and after adding a legacy network adapter CentOS appears to have installed properly. Upon logging in the cPanel install seems to have hung and there is no output in the install log. I have let it set overnight in the hopes it was just a very slow install but still no luck. Are there any additional steps or tricks required to get the cPanel install to complete under Hyper-V or a way for me to determine what is causing the issue? I'm not totally inept with Linux but I'm not very experienced either so any assistance would be appreciated.

    If anyone else stumbles across this post I managed to get it going. It's still unclear if it'll finish properly but at least it's started. At first I increased the virtual memory to 2GB and the logical processor cores to 4. This didn't help but it did speed things along and would've been necessary at some point anyway. I can't be 100% sure as I was trying a lot of things but I believe the issue was the size of the virtual hard disk. Even though Hyper-V claims virtual hard disks are available up to 2TB it appears that the CentOS install itself doesn't recognize virtual disks larger than 127GB (the default size offered by Hyper-V). Once I resized the virtual hard disk to 127GB the install seems to be going smoothly.
