Hyper-V VM running WINDOWs 7 and Remote FX

I am trying to use Remote FX to take advantage of USB redirection. I have Hyper-V role active on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64bit, and have Windows 7 Pro on the Client Machine.

I can't seem to find an ISO image of Windows 7 Sp1 to install on the Hyper-V Vm.; and if I did will I need a license key? Can't I just install one of the 4 free included Server 2008 virtual licenses and use RemoteFX to the Windows 7 Client? Thanks for the help

you will need a valid Windows 7 license key to activate.

The virtual licenses are for 2008 R2 Enterprise, and not Windows 7.
