Windows 2003 VM conversion

I am trying to convert a working 2003 standard server into a virtual machine using disk2vhd - I can create the the image and then the virtual machine under hyper-v manager and then run it OK.  My issue is i can not get the integrated services installed correctly.  It runs through the process and then requests a restart but i am still unable to use the mouse and have no network connections.  
I have tried creating different images but i get the same issue - unable to install the mouse or network card.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

HI,  I dont get any errors when i install the Hyper-V integration services, it returns stating it is successful and requesting a restart.  When i click my mouse in the screen it alters the very bottom (near the status) and states - "to release your mouse press CTRL + ALT + LEFT ARROW.  As soon as i move my mouse this message disappears.  I have 2003 SP 2 installed and there are no additional updates pending installation.

what version of Hyper-V are you using? and the server that you made the VM from is not the same physical system you are running hyper-v right (as that can cause problems)?

Hi,  my situation is, I have 2 old physical computers (one running SBS 2003 and the other Windows 2003 server as a terminal server).  I have a new HP Proliant ML 350 server that I am going to use.  I have run the conversion on the SBS 2003 server and that is running fine as a VM on the Server 2012 hyper-V - and have removed the old hardware from site.  The other server (2003 terminal server) runs the convert all OK but am unable to get the integration tools to run as I am unable to get my mouse operational and I have no network connections available (even though I have assigned them in the VM settings).

in Hyper-V in the settings of the VM check the network adapter section and remove them all and in the integration settings under management make sure all are checked; reboot; now try to install the integration services. If the latest are installed you should get this message (picture), do you (this is from a 2003 VM)? If you do reboot again and then add back a legacy network card. If you don't get this message please post a screen shot of what message you do get -- thanks

If the above fails you can use powershell to manually and offline install it to the VM--here are step by step instructions http://blogs.technet.com/b/virtualization/archive/2013/04/19/how-to-install-integration-services-when-the-virtual-machine-is-not-running.aspx
