Hyper-V: Install of 2012 Std, no keyboard access.

I have a 2012 R2 Std Hyper-V host and I am trying to install a 2012 Std VM from an ISO.   During the installation I have no keyboard access in the VM....how do I work around this?

Are you RDPing into the host or are you sitting at a console? Did you install other roles or software on the host? Is it a gen1 or gen2 VM? These are the first questions that come to mind.

This is not a known issue nor is it normal behavior, so *something* abnormal is going on. But details are helpful.

I ended up taking all defaults.  Not using the mouse.  And RDPing to customize the install.
