  • Question

  • When I connect to my VM and select Insert Integration Services Setup Disk from the Action menu, nothing happens.  Should this be on my my Windows Server 2008 R2 DVD that I used to set yp Hyper-V and my two VMs?

  • The Integration Services disk is for virtual machines only.  You need to update them in the SBS virtual machine.  Once you connect to the virtual machine and select Insert Integration Services Setup Disk from the Action menu, then open Windows Explorer and run the setup on the virtual machine's optical drive.

    there is no physical disk, this is only an ISO and ONLY for VMs.

    Edit 2018Feb15:

    Since there is confusion over a 7 year old post, here's some clarification.

    Newer versions of Hyper-V have dropped support for older Windows OS, like XP, since they are not supported by Microsoft any longer.  There are 2 ways to get them.  1. Download an older version of Hyper-V Server and extract the VMguest.iso

    Hyper-V 2012 R2: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-hyper-v-server-2012-r2 (you’ll need to mount the ISO, open the x:\sources\install.wim file with something like 7zip, browse to Windows\system32, and extract the vmguest.iso)

    Or, if you’ve got access to Windows 8/8.1/2012/2012R2 VM/system available with Hyper-V installed you’ll find it in the C:\windows\system32\ folder.

    Hyper-V 2008 R2: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3512

    2. Download them from somewhere on the internet.

  • You should see it as DVD inserted to your virtual DVD rom in Virtual Machine. double Click my computer than select DVD drive integration disk should be there (however if you are windows 2008 r2 you won't see integration disk, becasue it is not required any more integration disk, where required only to systems prior Windows 2008 R2)

  • I'm afraid I do not understand.  My Hyper-V parent is Server 2008 R2.  I have two VMs running that I created from the Hyper-V Management Console.  One VM runs Windows Server 2008 R2 and the other runs SBS 2008.  This is the message appearing on my Hyper-V parent:

    A storage device in 'SBS2008' loaded but has a different version from the server. Server version 4.2 Client version 2.0 (Virtual machine ID BE89A3D8-18FC-433F-8D05-1DCADB17B0B6). The device will work, but this is an unsupported configuration. This means that technical support will not be provided until this problem is resolved. To fix this problem, upgrade the integration services. To upgrade, connect to the virtual machine and select Insert Integration Services Setup Disk from the Action menu.

    Thanks,

  • "Insert Integration Services Setup Disk" doesn't appear on the ACTIONS menu if you are using the SCVMM console to manage and/or connect to the console of the virtual machine.

    You need to launch the Hyper-V Manager console, then right-click on the virtual machine and choose CONNECT.

    Once you do that, the option to insert the disk will be on the ACTIONS menu.
    It usually requires a reboot of the virtual machine after updating.

    The integration services setup disk is called VMGUEST.ISO and located under C:\Windows\System32 on the Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 host file system by default.

  • Does a Windows 7 Ultimate workstation running in a virtual machine require the Integration Services Disk to be installed?  If so, I do not see the option in the Hyper-V (Windows Server 2008 R2 version).  I think this is why I do not see the legacy network adapter as an available NIC.

    Thanks,

    Tom

  • Again, the Integration Services are ONLY for installation inside a virtual machine.  You aren't gonig to see an option for them unless you're connected to a VM via the Hyper-V management console (the option is under the Action menu.)

    Windows 7 includes the Hyper-V integration components, you may need to upgrade them depending on what service pack levels your Win7 and Hyper-V server are on.

    However, the legacy adapter and integration components aren't dependent upon each other. 

    The legacy adapter would be added to your VM before you install an OS in your VM and IC are installed after you finish installing your OS.  With Windows7 you don't need to use the legacy adapter since Windows 7 is a supported OS and Integration components are available.

    Also, are you trying to add the legacy adapter while the Windows 7 VM is running or in a saved state? If so, that is the reason it isn't available to install, the VM needs to be powered off.

  • I know this is really old, but I had to install Windows Server 2003 (to upgrade to 2008) and this is the answer to the original question. For whatever reason, when connecting via Hyper-V (the Hyper-V server is Win 2012) my "Action" menu had no "Insert Integration Services Setup Disk". Found the ISO in that folder put it in the "drive" and got them installed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • Dude, I didn't repeat.  This is how the forums work.  The accepted answer is shown at the original post time and again as the final answer.

    Dude, before making uneducated comments, maybe figure out how these forums work.

    Also, my answer was relevant in 2011, when this was posted.  Since then, newer versions of Hyper-V have dropped support for WinXP.  Maybe realize that things have changed over the last 7 years?

    Since you've dredged this up, here's the answer:

  •   This dialogue just shows the problems of reviving old threads. The current situation is completely different from 2011.  Apart from no support for XP, most Windows systems now include the necessary files, either from the original installation or through windows update. The ISO is rarely needed.

  • Bill or essjae,

    This dialog also shows for many reasons people don't want to abandon a lot of work effort even though a particular OS is no longer supported...  I'm having problems abandoning VBA 2003 because of years of coding that all has to be done by updating to a newer version of VBA...  So, I built a VM in Feb 2018 to protect my work from Win10 updates that wreck things by using a copy of win7 pro I couldn't use any longer on my LAN for compatibility reasons, but is backward compatible with 2003.

    These old threads are like tracks in the snow that last for years, but they lead me to an answer eventually if I read the date stamps!   My last windows update, yesterday, caused "KB2925727 - Unknown Device (VMBUS) in Device Manager In Virtual Machine", which could be fixed with in 2014 with "On that VM insert integration Service setup disk. Open it and go to supportamd64 and find “Windows6.2-HyperVIntegrationServices-x64 (cabinet file). Use 7 zip to extract cabinet file.
    Go to device manager and point unknown device to search driver in just extracted folder"

    I've read through this whole time warp and I'm still looking for answer to fix a driver issue from the last update with a file that I should have to point the driver to in the current version that I am running (Configuration Version 8.2?) and Win7 SP1 running in the VM on a machine running current Win10...

    Looks like the last update missed a step that has been missed before and when there was an ISO file people found a way to fix it...  Got any ideas, so we can help people that are running current systems that could be repaired the old ways?

    Ernie...

     PS, I am currently looking at this page, am I on the right track?  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/virtualization/hyper-v/manage/manage-hyper-v-integration-services

    EDIT 8/30/2018:

    After the market collection and analysis routes were completed and updated MyPortfolio.xls (with today's recommendations), I shut down the Win7VM and the VM (8.2?).  I then launched the VM, went to the Hyper-V Manager, Actions, ErnieWin7Dev(The VM), Settings,Management, Integration Services, left-clicked the "Guest Services" box, Left-clicked "Apply" Button, Left-Clicked OK.

    Closed and restarted the VM. 

    Integrations Services previously had a note "Some services offered", which now said "All Services offered."

    This time I clicked on "Connect" instead of "Settings", signed into Win7, went to Windows Update in Control Panel, Left-Clicked "Check for updates" button...  There were 6 new updates.

    Downloaded and installed the updates; Did the request restart and the required sign-in; Went do Device Manager, Other Devices still had a "?" Icon.  Open the tree and bothe Unknown devices with question marks were still there. 

    Right-Clicked on each, Left-Clicked "Scanned for hardware changes", no joy...

    Right-Clicked on each, Left-Clicked "Update Driver Software", no joy....

    My take so far is you folks seem to imply the fixes are now automatic with windows update, but when it doesn't happen, the fix is not intuitive.

    You you have any helpful suggestions?

    PS...  I will be away from computers for about two weeks, so if you reply, please be patient...

    EDIT 8/30/2018 5:59 PM:

    A point that may not have been made clear earlier is that Hyper-V 2008 R2 may mean "you are using a Win7 SP1 as you Hyper-V?"...  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842

    If I look in The VM at C:\Windows\System32, there is no VMGuest.ISO.... Interesting, seems the expert people that do this everyday are speaking in acronyms, because this is their expertise, and MicrosoftSpeak is easier for them to use when conversing with each other...

    Thanks brandon1234!  I think you offering is worth more than 124 point!  Now, I know how to make a next step test to prove or disprove Win7 SP1 is 2008 R2, if I don't run out of time before systems shut down tonight...

    MicrosoftSpeak is not as helpful as I would like being some one that just uses the purchased Microsoft tools to make a living and get a job done (Might add when I bought them, I thought they were of great value, to getting a job done that was not previously not as possible, even though not supported anymore.  Little did I know I was being sucked into a paradigm that would be constant maintenance and rework for the OS on up!)...

    If I go to that site listed above by essjae for 2008 R2, I can download the file VMGuest.ISO, Thanks?, essjae for providing a test tool, if I got the interpretation correctly...
