How to solve multiple monitors problem after installing Hyper-V role

After I installed the Hyper-V role on my Windows 10 Pro laptop I noticed several monitors that didn’t exist :

I tried to re-create the problem by uninstalling the Hyper-V role, and after that the problem was gone. But ofcourse that isn’t a reasonable solution. After some investiging I found out that this is a common problem with the Intel HD 4600 graphics adapter. The solution is to revert to an older version of the driver.

You can find the driver here

After downloading the driver go to the properties of your display adapter and choose roll back driver.

After that choose Update driver and then choose the driver file you’ve just downloaded.

After rebooting you should notice that you’re extra monitors are gone :

Azure VM easy patchmanagement

In my Azure test environment I’m running several Windows and Linux servers. In this blog post I describe an easy and effective way to patch them. It only takes you a minute of configuring!

Azure_Updates01

On a freshly installed Windows Server 2016 without patching there were 4 available updates (Azure template) :

Azure_Updates02

I’ve created a new Update Deployment (go to the second tab) :

Azure_Updates03

(Specify which type of updates you wish to deploy. Tip: create multiple deployment for different kind of updates)

Azure_Updates04

Azure_Updates05

In my case I install all availables updates every day at 05:00 PM. (test environment :-))

Just 2 b sure I’ve checked the status of Windows Updates inside the VM :

Azure_Updates06

Azure_Updates07

As you can see it’s very easy to update your VM’s (this works for Linux too!) running on Azure (Stack).
