HyperV Integration Services: Fatal error during installation

Problem:
Installing Integration Services on HyperV I got the following problem:

Solution:
Delete (or rename) two file on the guest machine

C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\wdfldr.sys
Reboot and reinstall the integration services.

Thanks. That worked great, even though I didn't reboot before I installed. Do you know WHY it worked? (I haven't done any research on that yet. Thought I would ask you first.)

Worked for me too when suffering this same error on a XP image running inside Hyper-V.

Some Googling suggests those two .SYS files have something to do with keyboard/mouse functionality and possibly other low-level driver services.

Worked perfectly to get past this error with a Server 2003 after P2V with Acronis.

Cheers

When I did this and rebooted, the VM went into startup recovery, luckily I was able to rename the files back.
