Error installing Server 2012 in 2012 Hyper-V VM


  • I have a 2012 Hyper-V Core setup and I am trying to install Server 2012 on a new Hyper-V VM and am getting the following error as it goes to begin the setup:

    "A media driver your computer needs is missing.  This could be a DVD, USB or Hard disk driver.  If you have a CD, DVD or USB Flash Drive with the driver on it, please insert it now."

    I am not sure exactly what it is missing.  It throws the error right after you hit install now and before you insert the product key.  I have tried on 2 seperate Hyper-V instances and it results in the same error.  I have also tried installing it via ISO and via direct attached media drive with a burned DVD with the same error.

    I was able to install Windows 8 without issue on a VM, and would have thought it would have had the same driver base. 

    Any ideas?

    Thanks -- Chris
