I have Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V.
Can I create a Virtual Machine, install Ubuntu 11.10, then "clone" it to a real physical hard drive for use as a real OS in a physical PC?

I've never tried going from V2P...But Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) might be able to do it. Though Ubuntu isn't one of the supported languages it may do what you need. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/system-center/virtual-machine-manager.aspx
dd if=/dev/<virtualdisk> of=/dev/<physicaldisk>(substituting whatever device names they actually have) to copy the image to the physical disk.
As long as the kernel, drivers, partitioning scheme, etc. are compatible with the physical PC and the image fits on the disk, you should be fine.
