Is that the only way to get rsat? When i install server 2012 , rsat was available automatically

Yes because by default the rsat tools comes with the server technology but for Win7 & 8 you have to download and install it.

Hi.

There are several aways, all depend from your Hyper-V Configurations.

Let´s assume that your VM Host can ping your Physical machine, you can create a a share on your physical machine and access to that share through the network.
For that you have to go to your start menu-> Run and on the run window put \\myphysicalmachineIP\myWin8Share.

If your Win8 VM is configured to just have internal network you have to burn a CD with RSAT files to the CD and on the VM Host window choose Media ->Capture your CD Drive.

Unfortunely connect a USB drive to the VM Host is more complicated and your Vm Host needs to have network connectivity to your Physical machine, in my opinion just stick with the options that I mention above.

If you want to check how to connect USB drives to your VM Host follow this links:

And

Remoting devices into a Hyper-V child (virtual machine)

I hope this helps you.

Please explain why you have problems simply installing RSAT (no matter where).
