aptitude update

wget -c http://www.yusufozturk.info/linux/linux-image-2.6.36-hyperv-debian.x86_64.deb

wget -c http://www.yusufozturk.info/linux/linux-headers-2.6.36-hyperv-debian.x86_64.deb

apt-get install build-essential

dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.36-hyperv-debian.x86_64.deb linux-headers-2.6.36-hyperv-debian.x86_64.deb

echo -e "hv_vmbus\nhv_storvsc\nhv_blkvsc\nhv_netvsc" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
