You should remember about requirements:

If You want to run Hyper-V 2012 R2 from USB stick, you need min 8 GB USB flash drive.
The computer which is to run the Hyper-V needs to support boot from USB and the Hyper-V prerequisites. (x64 and others)

I think it is good idea to use 32 GB USB 3.0 stick  (

To create the USB stick with Hyper-V on it, you have to download and install the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) for Windows 8.1, and than use the instructions form links above.
