I have DPM 2010 installed and when choosing Recovery (Bare Metal Recovery) I don't have an option to Recover as virtual machine to any host. I only have option copy to network folder available. Is there anything I need to do prior to getting this option available?

DPM 2010 is installed on physical host. No Hyper-V role is installed on it. Maybe that's the reason?

To get that option machine has to be backed up from Hyper-V HOST side and not from the machine itself (Bare Metal Recovery or not). So DPM client has to be installed on Hyper-V Host and backup done from there. Otherwise the option is not visible.
