comment Automating windows server 2008 installation in hyper V with powershell
You can do the same without making a WIM image first. Just run the offline update against the image in the VHD, by mounting the VHD.

comment migrate a VM from Server 2012 to Windows 8 pro
I misspoke. I've edited my response. You can just import the config files directly.

comment Adding Unattended.xml Files to Hyper-V Powershell Creation?
You'd format the disk presented by the VHD, probably with NTFS. And then you'd put the unattend file at the root of that file system.

comment Adding Unattended.xml Files to Hyper-V Powershell Creation?
A VHD is a file that contains the data that will be perceived by the VM as a disk. They are not shared between your VMs. Each VM has its own. (There are ways of sharing a base image between multiple VMs, but that's a more advanced topic.) You can mount the VHD file as a disk on any machine, whether it's a VM or not. The example I gave was assuming that you would mount it on the machine running the script, at least temporarily. I've also added some detail to the answer.

comment Hyper-v does not shut down pc
Actually, I think that you've titled your question wrong. Hyper-V does shut down your VM, as evidenced by pushing the "shut down" button in the Hyper-V manager. What doesn't work is telling the guest OS to shut itself down, which has little to do with Hyper-V.

That tells you that you have plenty of I/O queued. The VM isn't your bottleneck. Changing things within that VM won't make your system go faster.

With those drivers installed IDE is no slower than SCSI. I'd look for other bottlenecks. Open Performance Monitor in the Hyper-V management OS and see what it tells you is happening.

Did you change from the Legacy NIC to the fast NIC? If you had networking before you had those drivers installed, then you must have been using the emulated (legacy) NIC. Installing those drivers doesn't make the legacy NIC go any faster. Using a completely different networking stack does. (I know that this isn't intuitive, because exactly the opposite is true of the IDE storage.)
