Hi everyone, I have a hyper-v cluster I have been using succesfully for a few years now but i am experiencing issues with a guest VM running Windows Server 2003r2 x64 Standard.  

Any server I have ever created from scratch I have been able to control and work with but this particular server was an existing physical server I recently tried to virtualize.

I copied the vhd files to the appropriate place on the clusterstorage volume, defined the VM and the server boots up just fine.  The trouble is I have absolutly no control over the server.  Ctrl+Alt+Del doesnt work, power down restart commands dont work.  My guess is I have to inject drivers for integration features but i do not know how to do that when I cant control the server at all!

Any thoughts?
