Title: Tiny Core as an Hyper-v VM wont finish boot
Post by: Bagre on March 08, 2022, 12:19:08 PM
I am trying to install a Tine Core VM under Hyper-v.
But it stucks at boot in a text mode window and I can do nothing.
I tried Core Plus from 10.1 to 13.0 and none of them finished boot.
The initial menu for boot options runs Ok, but no option is able to finish boot and present an interface nor a console.
I tried on a Windows 10 [10.0.19044.1526] and in a Windows 2019 Server [10.0.17763.2565] with the same results.
Attached is an image of the stuck point.
Does anyone have an idea on what am I missing ?

I think you have to take a look at this good link and guide as pdf.
As was finding this thread just of looking of all the threads in "Tiny Core on Virtual Machines"

I read this before and tried to do what was said without success.
But I missed an important part

I downloaded TinyCore-6.4.1.iso from http://www.tinycorelinux.net/downloads.html. I used
version 6.4.1 because I was not able to get the then current version 7.1 to work.
This is quite an old version...
Does anyone knows if is it possible to install a recent build on Hyper-V ?

Hi Bagre
Please do not double post. Your other post has been removed.

Ok. Sorry.
But this seems more a bug than a VM talk, this is the reason I posted it twice, I should asked for moving instead.
Could you please move this to the bugs panel ?

The TinyCorePure64-13.0.iso boots Ok.
This seems to be a 32bits version issue only.
I will work with the 64 version.

Hi Bagre
Does it boot on bare metal (no VM) ?

Hi.

I didn't try.
Probably yes.
Since I was able to boot the 64Bits version I stopped looking for an answer for this.
Many clues points to a file system issue or something like that.
See https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/debian-26/debian-hangs-at-boot-with-random-crng-init-done-4175613405 (https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/debian-26/debian-hangs-at-boot-with-random-crng-init-done-4175613405)
Despite being an old programmer, I am not really a Linux guy, but if you send me instructions I can try to debug this.
