Hi

I have been playing with server 2012 and had some VMs running on it.

I recently rebuilt the server and went to server 2012 r2

the vm's are still in tact as they were on a network store

When trying to import them using hyperv manager, i get the following

"hyper-v did not find the virtual machines to import from location d:\VHD\

Given he name of that folder, I'm guessing you are loomig at he folder that holds the virtual hard disk files for your VMs, but your VM files (hay hold other settings, like NICs, number of processors, memory, etc) are stored elsewhere. You need to point to THAT folder to import a VM.
