I'm running into a number of problems with linuxmint when installed on a windows 10 machine pro (2004) with hyper-v


1) I am unable to copy and paste between the VM box Windows 10
I have enhanced mode enabled
2) I have no sound
3) When I start up the VM it also says:
check your video drivers
your system is currently running without video hardware acceleration...

system seems sluggish. When I run device manager it says No proprietary drivers in use. I have a NVIDA card in the PC

4) Unable to disable passwords. sudo visudo and then changed the file as follows:

Defaults !authenticate
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
saltydog ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

%admin ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL


when an application like driver manager is used it still requests passwords


Need help!

Are you using Oracle VirtualBox? If so you have to install Guest Additions - VirtualBox's main menu: go to "Devices" and click "Install Guest Additions CD Image". Then open Windows explorer and explore "CD Drive X:\Virtualbox Guest Additions CD" and double-click to run "VBoxWindowsAdditions.exe". (Follow the instructions to install Guest Additions). *
You also need to enable the “Shared Clipboard” > “Bidirectional” option from “Devices” menu.
