Did you allow for anonymous access on IIS? I believe it's described in the "getting started" guide.
I tried re loading it multiple times and the same result. I am not sure if it was the hardware or what. I tried loading on a older Dell Poweredge 2950 both as a hyper-V and on the physical server itself. I also tried on a old Dell Poweredge SC1435 and it did not work there either. I ended up loading 2008R2 on a Dell Optiplex 360 and just converting it to a VHD file and running as a hyper-v guest and it works great now. No idea why but it works.
