Perhaps we should seal the Vagrant boxes. [1]  I started a build, I'll 
send you the links off-list.

We're using Image Factory to build the boxes.  It performs a single 
netinst using KVM, and the resulting disk image is converted from the 
qemu format to different formats like VMDK, VHD, etc. (this only affects 
the image format, the files remain untouched as they were when the 
installation ended - the box should be able to boot correctly). 
Metadata is then generated for each virtualization type, and everything 
packed together in Vagrant boxes for each provider we support.  For 
Hyper-V, probably HyperVOVFDescriptor.py is the most interesting part:
