Error Installing HyperV Integration on Windows Server 2003

Just thought I would throw this up quickly – I just hit a problem when installing the HyperV Integration tools on a new Windows Server 2003 Virtual Machine.

HyperV threw:

Error (13233)
Unable to install Virtual Guest Services on virtual machine Win NAS. The Hyper-V Integration Services setup exited with error code 60001.

Recommended Action
For more information, refer to the Hyper-V documentation for virtual machine integration services at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=118036 and then try the operation again.

The solution is simple – install Service Pack 2 on the Windows Server 2003 VM and try again. Would be nice if the HyperV toolkit checked the SP level and gave you a decent error however (and the above link is pretty ambiguous too).
