Mouse not captured in remote desktop session – Hyper V Windows 2008

Issue:

Mouse not captured in remote desktop

hyperverror

Hyper V Version:

HyperVersion

Resolution:

1. Boot the guest Windows 2003 x64 into “Safe Mode”
2. To “add remove programs” we added the following registry 
         HKLM-SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer 
         - Value for default key is Services
3. Installed the “Integration Services” under safe mode
4. Rebooted the server in normal mode
5. Mouse started working

Don’t forget to leave your comments :)

Thanks,

This worked on my 2003x^$ server! Although the installation of the integration services failed in safe mode, i rebooted and ran it again in normal mode and it installed successfully. Does MS have this documented?
