Can a Hyper-V VM be a DC if it is the only 2008 R2 server in the domain?

I'm building a new 2008 R2 server and I've been told that it isn't a good idea to make a VM a DC.  However, we only have one Server.  Can I make the VM the DC?

I'll leave this open until I finish the build today.  Thanks for the help.
