VHDX images for DietPi, fully compatible with Microsoft Hyper-V.
Download Latest VHDX
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. It is available on common VM software such as VMware and VirtualBox, but it is not (yet) available on Hyper-V.
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 (~200MB when compressed!)
- images are compressed, signed and released on GitHub
This project is NOT officially supported by the DietPi team, nor is the team affiliated with it. This is a spin-off project which aims to formally support Hyper-V as a hypervisor for running DietPi.
Please rely on this project's issues page for errors/bugs directly related to Hyper-V, and the official DietPi GitHub or forums for DietPi-specific issues. If uncertain, report the issues here. Any issues that are related to DietPi itself will be relayed to the official team.
