Windows Server 2008 R2 Blackscreen after enabling Hyper-V Role on Cisco UCS

Hyper-V R2 SP1

Today I had a strange problem on a Cisco UCS installation. After you enabled Hyper-V on a Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1, you will get a black screen.

Cisco fixed this in the UCS Firmware version 2.0.1(t).

“After enabling Hyper-V in Windows 2008 R2 SP1 then rebooting, the server no longer shows a black KVM screen and a failure of windows startup and login.”
