Did you perhaps forget to create a VHD file for the VM?

comment Is it possible to run a “Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V Virtual Machine” on Windows 7x64 Pro machine?
Again, your problem is that those VHDs have an OS image in them set up to run within a Hyper-V VM. And VHD files are just containers, equivalent to a disk drive. Just because you can put something on a disk doesn't mean it will boot when you attach it to a computer. You may need to adjust the contents of the disk to boot it. The link you listed, tbone, is one that talks about booting a VHD on a physical machine, not a VM. So instead of adjusting the contents of the virtual disk for a different hypervisor, you'd need to adjust it for your physical machine.

Yes, I understood that. But I was trying to answer tbone's question. I would expect the performance to be so bad, particularly on a laptop, that another answer was warranted.

comment Hyper-V, Hyperthreading, and the implications of per-core licensing
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.
