How do I install .net framework 2.0 x64 on Hyper-V 2008 R1?

Last Modified: 2012-08-14

I've run into a stag with figuring things out on Hyper-V.  My goal is I am trying to team 2 Broadcom NICs together.  In order to do that, I need the BACS program to run and setup the team.  Check.  I need to obtain the Windows Automated Installation Kit.  Check.  I need to obtain .Net 2.0 x64.  Check.

Now to install.  Uh oh.  BACS requires .Net 2.0.  But I can install .Net with the Dism utility, but wait, R1 does not have it!!  Enter the WAIK, but wait, you have to have .Net 2.0 installed in order to install WAIK to install .Net 2.0.  And to add insult to injury, I cannot install .Net the old fashion way because...Internet Explorer 5.01 is required???  Ok So I try to install IE8 and Hyper-V says f**k you!!

Ok, so I am not in a position to upgrade to Hyper-V R2.  So how do I install .Net 2.0 framework on Hyper-V when installing Internet Explorer and WAIK is impossible?

FYI, this is the free Hyper-V, not Server Core.
