Hey folks, sorry for the late update. Some backend changes were made to alleviate this issue but I believe it doesn’t solve it for everyone yet. Let me go get some details and come back with a better update. Thanks!
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature
I use another host that gives you the Open Source NoVNC. It works great. Why is such an important feature so difficult to implement?
Please explain what exactly "serial console access" is going to offer.
At this point our recommendation is to move resources into a new Resource Group with the new name.
We have been considering all of the risks and investigating the steps required to ensure we implement this feature with high positive impact and low to no negative impact.
After this investigation we have decided we will enable Pay-As-You-Go customers the option to configure a spending limit on a Pay-As-You-Go subscription, with appropriate safeguards and measures to prevent both service abuse and production service failure.
We have not yet finished determining the details of what this feature will look like, nor do we have a timeline for release, but we have heard your voices and have added this feature to our backlog.
Thanks for your continued feedback,
-Adam (Azure Billing Team)

The status of this item has been moved back to Under Review. We initially planned to move to VHDX support as part of our support for HyperV Gen2 VMs, but we ended up using the VHD format for Gen2 VMs as well. Some aspects of the Azure Infrastructure do not cleanly support VHDX OS or data disks. So this feature is dependent on some of these internal services being updated which is an ongoing process.
Azure should be made consistent with Hyper-V.

For Windows this idea is dependent on console access to provide interactive access to the booting VM. Console access itself is under review currently and pending work to support console access in a highly secure manner.
In the interim it is possible to create a custom VM or image through nested virtualization. Once the VM has been created through nested virtualization.
