Can't Format Drive With Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V

I have been running pfSense for some time now in vmware server 2.02 without too much issue. I would like to move to a level 1 hypervisor to host pfsense and windows home server Vail. I have tried esxi 4.1 but have throughput issues with Windows home server.
I am having trouble formating the pfsense drive under Hyper-V R2. I get an error regarding the number of sectors / disk geometry and all the format / partition steps throw errors. If I do end up skipping all the warnings the files install but pfsense freezes at the very beginning of boot up. Any suggestions? Anyone else have trouble installing 2.0 beta4 in Hyper-V? I have tried installing with pass through disks as well as to a VHD. Same error both times. vmware server installs pfsense to the same drive just fine.
I had the same issue. Only solution I found was to use a smaller virtual disk (I think 10 GB worked for me).
