Hi knowledgeable,

I think you need to this when creating the Hyper-V as per:

1.      Open Hyper-V Manager. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Hyper-V Manager.
2.      From the Action pane, click New, and then click Virtual Machine.
3.      From the New Virtual Machine Wizard, click Next.
4.      On the Specify Name and Location page, specify what you want to name the virtual machine and where you want to store it.
5.      On the Memory page, specify enough memory to run the guest operating system you want to use on the virtual machine.
6.      On the Networking page, connect the network adapter to an existing virtual network if you want to establish network connectivity at this point.
Note
If you want to use a remote image server to install an operating system on your test virtual machine, select the external network.
7.      On the Connect Virtual Hard Disk page, specify a name, location, and size to create a virtual hard disk so you can install an operating system on it.
8.      On the Installation Options page, choose the method you want to use to install the operating system:
•      Install an operating system from a boot CD/DVD-ROM. You can use either physical media or an image file (.iso file).
•      Install an operating system from a boot floppy disk.
•      Install an operating system from a network-based installation server. To use this option, you must configure the virtual machine with a network adapter connected to the same network as the image server.
9.      Click Finish.

B Rgds,

If the ISO files are on a Windows box elsewhere on the network, you need to configure Constrained Delegation in Active Directory so that the Hyper-V box is allowed to pass the CIFS credentials to the box storing the ISOs.

The how-to is here:

Otherwise you will get an Access Denied error when you try and mount the ISO in H-V Manager.
