Hi, I am trying to setup a Windows 2008R2 Enterprise Full Installation client on Hyper-V on a Windows 2008R2 Enterprise Full Installation host.  However, when the installer gets to the part where it is "Expanding files," I get an error message that says the source files are corrupt and installation will end.  I am installing the client using the same DVD that was used to  install the host and so the disk is good and I've also tried installing off an image of the disk as well (SHA-1 checked), but with the same error.  As a test, I tried to install the "Core Installation," and that finished without problem.  I've set the client disk space to 256GB and client RAM to 8GB so I think that meets the min requirements.  Any thoughts on this?  The server has a i930 processor with vt-d enabled and 12GB's of RAM.  Thanks, Hammer8

This sounds like a problem with the DVD. I would download the ISO from the Microsoft licensing site or TechNet if you have access to those. If you need, I can get the SHA1 hash of my ISO from Microsoft to compare.

Thanks.  It turns out my temps were too high.  I was able to complete the install after correcting.  Thx.
