Mouse cursor disappear after I installed windows xp in Hyper-v. when I move mouse cursor to windows 2008 and windows xp, the mouse disappear after and during the installation of windows xp. I checked the reason at internet. One article said after the installation, the mouse cursor would come back, but after the installation in my PC, the cursor do not come back. Anyone can give some idea for solving it ? Thank you!

Thank you for your reply. No, i did not install the integration service.
after i installed the integration service, i do not find the situation change. i still cannot see the cursor.

That article say :   " click Insert Integration Services Setup Disk. On Windows operating systems, you must close the New Hardware Wizard to start the installation. If Autorun does not start the installation automatically, you can start it manually. Click anywhere in the guest operating system window and navigate to the CD drive. " 

my mouse cursor still disappear, how can i do this : "If Autorun does not start the installation automatically, you can start it manually. " ?
