Im trying to install Micrsoft HomeServer in a virtual Machine on Hyper V. During the installation i must accept the licence agreement, but i cant reach the radio button with the "tab" button. The cursor only goes to the text field, the "back-button and the "forward"-button. The mouse is not captured and i read that i have to install the integration service from inside the guest system, but i cant beacause i cant install the guest system without the mouse. Has anyone an idea how to solve the problem?

Thank You!!!

Have you tried using the Tab key to move between buttons? – Indrek Dec 3 '12 at 9:15

Have you considered preparing your VM using something else like Vmware Player, and then converting that to the Hyper-V format? – Zoredache Dec 3 '12 at 17:14
Thank you for that hint. with vmware player i could easily connect the mouse so i could install home server. now i have a working vm but i didnt try to use it in hyper v, thats the task for tomorrow ;) – SaschaW Dec 4 '12 at 23:04
