Intel Modular System and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with HyperV - How do I utilize allo resources?

I have an Intel Modular System with 4 Compute Modules and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with HyperV, and am trying to install the OS so I can utilize all the resources in the system. I need to be able to host several virtual machines on this system.

I have the shared LUN license to be able to share one LUN among all the compute modules, but I cannot determine how to install the OS so it can see all the CPU's and RAM available with the 4 compute modules.

Question 1: How can I install the OS so a single OS instance sees all available resources in the IMS system? Is this even possible?

Question 2: Do I need to install the OS on all compute modules and use high availability clustering to utiliize the resources?

Any insight is appreciated as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.

I just read up on this platform for the first time today, but I do believe the compute modules are separate server entities unto themselves, so it makes sense that you'd have to light up OS on each one and use HA to take care of it from there.
