This should be so easy but when try to validate a configuration and add a server an error tells me that the wizard is unable to determine if I have administrator access and that I should check if the server- and remote registry services are running. The are and the firewall has been completely disabled on all profiles.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I don't expect this to be the reason but I thought I just wanted to mention that I first installed the Hyper-V role and then the cluster feature.

Could it be that UAC is enabled? Right-click the cluster manager, choose "Run as administrator", try again.

I could swear that the server service was running. But due to my own mistake when I wanted to make the server service dependent on the MSiSCSI service I accidentially deleted the original dependicies... that doesn't work :)
