I can add ideas to the review process and work more closely with Arnaud if necessary, as well as making some upstream connections when necessary although I don't "own" it. I will throw in some ideas now:

The other Linux images there are amd64, and so are the Windows ones. Using x86, the VM is stuck in provisioning state until timeout. Using latest wheezy netinst for amd64 works nicely and out of the box with no kernel upgrade necessary and just using the waagent package that Arnaud has been working on.

imho, this page is containing old stuff. For instance, on kernels like
the one on wheezy, ata_piix is _already_ disabled on HyperV
automatically. Also, I don't see the point of creating a -virtual
flavour since generic kernels should just work (as long as all needed
patches are backported or already merged).
