Hi,
 
 I have W2012 and running SBS2011 as VM and some XPPs as VM.
 SBS2011 is running DHCP and it is connected to the internet.
 However XP VMs does not even have Network Adapter Card. Therefore it is not receiving IP address from DHCP server. But when setting up XP VM, I chose the default network adapter card - Broadcom Nextreme Gigabit Ethernet - Virtual Switch.

 Can you help?

Have you installed the integration services into XP yet? Vista and newer came with *a* set of integration services pre-installed (although you should always upgrade them) so you'd at least get basic functionality even if you didn't bother to change anything. But XP shipped several years before Hyper-V so no integration services are embedded in the OS, not even with SP3. Thus to get any of the integrated components (network adapter, SCSI adapter, etc) you must mount the virtual ISO and install the compentents.

 Can you provide step-by-step instructions as to how to "mount the virtual ISO and install the compentents"?

It is step #3 in Microsoft's Hyper-V "Getting Started" guide....which is an essential read for even the most basic Hyper-V deployment.

I ran "Insert Integration Service Setup" from VM/Action Menu and now it receives IP address from DHCP server.

Thanks for your help.
