comment Cannot complete installation of Windows 2012 R2 server foundation on Hyper-V
It looks like the issue is with W2K12R2 Foundation Edition which is probably not bundled with all services. I later tried with W2K12R2 standard edition and it worked like a charm.

Tried this before but did not find the virtual pc tools in the list of installed programs. Maybe because it is windows 2012 r2 guest.

Yes, ran setup from the integration services disk but it says that the integration services are already installed. BTW: 2012 r2 comes with integration services already installed it seems!

Hi Tony, got it fixed, it was very simple to do but hard to figure out. See my reply below.

I can try with windows 7 but I need to do the full installation. Somehow I feel that the problem is somewhere else!

2Gb for windows 2008 and 512 MB for XP. Could this be a problem... not likely!

Tried to add my Windows 2008 VM and that is also not working. The Network Adapter is not showing up in the device manager. Also under the System devices it says "Microsoft Hyper-V Virtual machine Bus could not be started because there is not much free resources (I have 500mb of free memory left).

I am going to read all that but first I need to play with it little bit to bring something up. This works just fine on 2008-R2!

comment Windows 2012 Server Hyper-V: Cannot see LAN
Just tried today by upgrading my virtual machine from SP2 to SP3 and rebooted the machine. The network is still not showing up. So either the server Hyper-V does not support XP-SP3 (which is what you said) or maybe there is something I am not setting correctly.

looks like sp3 is the supported guest (blogs.virtualizationadmin.com/lowe/2012/08/19/…)

comment Windows 2012 Server Hyper-V: Cannot see LAN
Just was testing various things (trial and error in the dark) to see if I can make it to work. Most of the time this strategy works for me :). I just checked that only XP-SP3 is the supported guest so this could be the issue because my current VM is XP-SP2

comment Windows 2012 Server Hyper-V: Cannot see LAN
This may be the problem... did not ever assume that only XP-SP3 is the supported guest. Have a bunch of VM disk with SP2 as some of our customers did not bother to upgrade! Probably need to go back to 2008-R2 again! However, I will test with SP3 and update here.

I am not sure what the vlan trunking means, need to look it up :), I just installed the 2012 server on this machine and created a new VM using a previous disk. Did not do any other setting changes...
