I did an inplace upgrade from Win2K8 to Win2K8 R2 on a server that had Hyper-V running.
I followed all instructions and the had not errors during or after the installation.
However, in hyperV manager now I see 4 new virtual Machines that are in a Saved-Critical state.
There names are similar to D24DE248-3472-447E-93E9-CD5A4170EF14

What are they and can I delete them?

Sounds like they could be snapshots.  Could you screenshow Hyper-V and potentially power one up to see what it does?  Might be work making sure it's configured for no network activity.

Are your other VMs showing up properly? You should install SP1 and then update the Hyper-V Integration services on each guest. If you want to hold off on SP1 you should install the half dozen or so hyper-v R2 hotfixes, and then update the Integration Components.
