Hyperthreading doesn't affect your licensing, which is by physical processor, not core or thread.

comment Hyper-V Integration Services
No, there's no special magic around Windows Update. The integration components are either present when the OS is installed (however inactive) and then activated when the OS is virtualized within Hyper-V or they're delivered on the "Integration Services Setup" CD image. They may be updated by Windows Update once installed, though.

comment Create a new VM from existing VHD
Run the "new virtual machine" wizard. When it asks whether you wan to use an existing VHD file, point to the one you have.

comment How resolution can be increased in a hyper-v virtual machine of windows 8
That could easily be. The Hyper-V VM projects a generic VGA into the VM. The intent is to allow a console that's good enough to get Remote Desktop or equivalent technologies working. Use networking to connect to the machine.

comment Do Hyper-V guests see multiple CPUs (sockets) or multiple CPU cores when assigned more than 1 vCPU?
The guest sees two virtual processors, yes. But, if you query the topology within that guest, it will report a single CPU with two cores. Virtual processors are not the same as CPUs. By the way, I know I'm right about this because I'm a member of the Hyper-V team at Microsoft. I wrote the code in Server 2012 that allows a user to reconfigure the guest's view of CPU and memory topology, creating both VMs which multi-CPU topologies and multi-node NUMA topologies.

Your answer is factually wrong. See my response to this question.
