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!

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/…)

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

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...

Yes there is only one nic on the server and the box "Allow management operating system to share this network" is checked

Thanks, just tried to experiment with it when it was not working otherwise...
