Issue managing a server 2008 Hyper-v server with Virtual Machine Manager

I have a Dell 3010 with an i5 and 4 gig of memory that I have installed Hyper-v 2008 R2 on.  I am trying to create a virtual on that installation using virtual machine manager (VMM) on my one of my main servers.  NOTE:  this is my first attempt at using hyper-v server 2008 r2 as the host, without just adding the role to an existing server 2008 standard server.

on the hyper-v server (dell 3010) I have enabled DEP (always on), disabled the firewall, installed powershell, enabled the remote management, configured the IP address, and joined it to the domain.

Every time I try to start a virtual machine it says "An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine(s).  'computername' could not initialize.

I have imported a working VM to this hyper-v server from my main hyper-v server, tried different ISO's for the installation, tried different CD's for the installation, tried using scsi instead of IDE and not having any luck.  I am stuck and in definite need of some help.

Thank you very much.

I had done that already also, ended up needing sp1 installed for server 2008.  Same file as standard server and windows 7

I found that Service Pack 1 was needed to create and run a virtual server on the Hyper-V Server.
