After I finished creating the model, I don't see a graphical representation of the Entity Framework objects. I am using VS2010 pro. and I have EF 6.1 installed. I was able to select tables and store procedure. What could have gone wrong here?

EF tools (e.g. graphical support)  is not supported in VS2010 as explained here
Can I develop applications and services with the EF runtime using Visual Studio 2010?

Yes. You can use the EF 6 runtime in any project targeting .NET 4.0 with Visual Studio 2010. You just need to install the EntityFramework NuGet package in your project as described in the "EF Runtime" section of the Getting Entity Framework page. One caveat on this is that there is no version of EF Tools that was designed to work with both Visual Studio 2010 and EF6, therefore only Code First is supported.

Hi Miguel,  I am new to EF. In EntityServerModeDatasource1 > ContextTypeName, I don't have any options and TableName is blank. How can I hook it to EntityServerModeDatasource1?

Regarding your post question.
First of all you need to define what EF version to target 5.0 or 4.0? those are the versions supported by VS2010. You current issue could be related to VS2010 not supporting EF6.0.

It is hard for me to provide any details without seen the full steps you have done and it seems that we are leaving the original question scope. there are many tutorials on the web regarding EF to get you started, for example:
