    Could you please post a note how you have done it ? whenever i try to get some OEM SLIC BIOS emulator to work the system does not boot up and gets stuck somewhere in GRUB.

    No need for emulator, you only need modded BIOS file for Hyper-V

    Well the annoying part is that i have done it before with emulator. I remember that it was tricky somehow .. had to do something with order version of the hyperV and having no integration tools installed at the moment of doing the emulator. then patching it up .. but stupid me forgot to type it down somewhere or do a backup of fresh activated sys ...
    I am gonna give the modded server a try.. no idea if it will work out or how it will work out..

    Can anyone post instructions on how to successfully get a loader/SLIC emulator to work with Win2k8 SP2 within a Hyper-V virtual machine?

    Modding the BIOS is a pain because of updates.
