I am using Hyper-V 2008R2.  How did you set up the networking on the VM Guest?   Did you use the legacy networking or the standard?  And did you install the Linux integration system?

You didn't mention what version of Hyper-V you're running. I have a CentOS 7 VM running on a Hyper-V 2012R2 host without any issues. I've also had success with Debian on Hyper-V.

I was hoping to upgrade to 3.4 but have run into a series of problems.  Wondering how others moved past this.

Initially, I was running 2.38 on Centos 5.  I tried to in place upgrade and ran into a socket library problem.  Saw that the version of the socket library in Centos 7 was compatible, so then began to focus on installing that on my hardware.  Unfortunately, the controller driver appears to be no longer supported.  So, then I started focusing on a VM for my Rancid server.  Got it all set up and installed on a Hyper-V host.  And while the networking worked during the install, apparently the network drivers aren’t right on the virtual disk and none of the networking works once I boot off the virtual HD.  So, has anyone set up Rancid 3.4/Centos 7 on a hyper V host?  Or have any other ideas to try?
