How does it not run correctly?  Why aren't you using 2012 R2 as the Hyper-V host?  Integration services are built in to all Windows Server versions from 2008 on.  If your hyper-V host is newer than the generation of the OS you're virtualizing then you may have to update the integration services, otherwise, there should be no need.

Windows Server 2012 R2 does not appear as a supported Guest OS on Windows 2008R2 see here

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc794868%28v=WS.10%29.aspx

if you were installing Windows Server 2012, you would need this hotfix

Windows Server® 2012, only on a server running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1), with a hotfix applied. To read about and download the hotfix, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2744129.

So I would try this hotfix at least, if you do not have it installed.

I would suspect either

Windows 2012 R2 is not compatible with Windows 2008 R2, or a new hotfix is required to support Windows 2012 R2 as a Guest VM.

What is the actual issue?

Not responding? BSOD, crashing?
