Anyway to read NFS vhdx from Hyper-V under Windows?

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Quick of it is: I have an Ubuntu 12.10 server instance, running under Hyper-V on Win 8. It has worked wonderfully for about 4 months. Now, when I need to pull data back to Windows, inexplicably, it refuses to mount the swap drive, and will not acquire an IPv4 address from my local router. Even though the system boots, and I can connect to it via the Hyper-V console, I cannot transfer data via scp, for instance. Also, connects via ssh also fail (e.g. hostname is unknown). My question is: is there a way to get Win8 to be able to recognize and read NFS from VHDXs? Apologies: want to add tags (HowTos)
