I am a long time Gentoo user and am now attempting to install Gentoo as a Hyper-V Guest running on Windows 8 and am stuck trying to get my kernel configured. I have installed gentoo-sources-3.12.21-gentoo-r1 and as a starting point have used the latest x86_64 kernel config I could find at Pappy's Kernel Seeds. So far so good.

The problem is I can not find where to select the Hyper-V drivers when using make menuconfig.

Looking at the output of lsmod when booted off of the installation CD I see that these kernel modules have been loaded: hv_utils, hv_netvsc, hid_hyperv, hv_utils and hv-storvsc.

There is a section under Device Drivers labeled "Microsoft Hyper-V Guest Support ----" which seems promising however when I select it it brings up an empty screen. Does some other option need to be enabled for these settings to appear perhaps?

I really would appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction here.

Thanks in advance.

After some more digging around I found that I was able to get to the additional Hyper-V driver options by selecting "Linux Guest Support" in Processor type and features.
