I am having problems adding a Windows 7 64 Bit (professional) PC to my SBS 2008 domain. When I run the launcher tool I get an error
This Computer does not meet the maximum requirements for running client setup. and I have a more information link that gets me to the sbs 2008 support page.

This PC that I am adding is running under Hyper-v and has 1.5 GB of RAM.
Any ideas?

    Does it have multiple NIC's enabled? You can only have one enabled whether physical virtual, or wireless. Disable all but one, join the domain, and then re-enable the others. The PC must also point ONLY to the SBS for DNS whether statically or dynamically configured. Best too that the SBS is fully updated, except I would avoid Exchange SP2.
