DietPi is an extremely lightweight Debian-based OS. With images starting at 400MB, that's 3x lighter than "Raspbian Lite". It is highly optimized for minimal CPU and RAM resource usage, ensuring your SBC always runs at its maximum potential. The programs use lightweight Whiptail menus. You'll spend less time staring at the command line, and more time enjoying DietPi.

DietPi makes self-hosting incredibly easy and straightforward, making it a superb candidate for running as a virtualised server image in home labs.

The DietPi.Hyper-V project aims to release DietPi images that are compatible with Hyper-V with minimal modifications. This way, Hyper-V users can experience the true essence of DietPi: optimised, simplified, for everyone.


  • fully compatible with Microsoft Hyper-V
  • minimal modifications to the DietPi installation
  • optimised file size (~120-150MB when compressed!)
  • images are compressed, signed and released on GitHub
