I am trying to test Server 2008 R2 by installing it on a virtual machine running under Hyper-V on Server 2008 R1. Unfortunately, every time I try to install it from the .ISO image, I get a prompt to insert a driver disk. I have tried this on three separate Hyper-V servers with the same result on each one. Is there a driver disk I am somehow missing? According to Microsoft, running a Server 2008 R2 guest is supported ( http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/hyperv-supported-guest-os.aspx ). Has anyone else run into this problem? How did you get around it?
The .ISO was bad. The hash code did not match the one posted on the Microsoft site. I was able to dig up another .ISO on our network that worked like a charm
