This is the situation. I have a Ubuntu system and a Win 10 syste, Currently I'm using dual-boot to switch between the two. Sometimes it is a hassle (have to switch the Bluetooth on the mouse and KB because they sync to only one machine) and various other issues.
There was a way to run the Ubuntu machine from Windows 10 using Virtualbox. I used this for a while but it can't transfer files between the guest and host (needed to install some other tools that wouldn't work).
I would like to give this a try with Hyper-V which is built into my Windows 10 Pro. In fact I bought Pro version because I want to try Microsoft's own virtual machine hoping it would interface better. Trying to setup my Hyper V machine I notice that I need to specify a VHDX drive, and I do not know how to point a VHDX file to my 8GB ext4 partition that sits in my 512GB mostly ntfs drive.
Thanks for reading.
