I installed Linux Mint on a physical SSD, and ran like that for several years.
Now, for work, I need to run Windows 10 Pro on my desktop. To do that, I used a separate physical SSD, but left the old Linux SSD connected to the SATA inside the PC.
I would like to boot to the Linux Mint OS, using Hyper-V. I have set the disk to 'offline' in Windows Local Disk Manager, and attached the Physical Disk to the Virtual Machine in Hyper-V.
No VHD's are attached to the VM. When I Start the VM, I Hyper-V says "Start Successful" and it's now "Running".
But, the only thing I see in the Console is a flashing cursor in the top-left corner. I can hit and get it to advance, but no input/output is apparent.
One other (possible) complication: The disk is partitioned in a bit of a funky way. I can't recall at the moment the purpose for each partition, but it's in 5 different partitions -- including a Linux \Boot, \Root, \Swap, and \Home.
Oh, and it's EFI.
