Cannot get VM to use Microsoft Virtual LAN Adapter in Hyper-V

I used Disk2vhd to make a VHD from an existing server running Windows 2008 R2.  After setting it up as a VM in Hyper-V Manager, and installing Integration Services, the VM will boot but will not respond to the network.  I checked to make sure it had an IP address, but this was not the problem.

When being logged onto the VM I could ping itself but could not ping the VM host or anything else on the network.

I was able to install the Legacy NIC and get it to work, but this is not ideal since its only 100MB.

I am also experiencing and issue where the mouse cursor will not move outside the VM window unless I press CTRL+ALT+Left Arrow.
      
I have reinstalled the Integration Services with no success.  I would prefer to uninstall and reinstall the Integration Services but cannot find a way to uninstall them.

If you rerun the integration services from the virtual media, it should provide an uninstall option. If that doesn't work, you may have to do a more laborious migration or backup/restore using a product that supports restores to dissimilar hardware. Disk2VHD is not a Microsoft supported method to convert a physical install into a VM, and my experience is that many drivers cause this method to fail. When that occurs, the only recourse is to use a process (migration, hardware independent restore) that doesn't keep the old drivers around that interfere with the integration services.
