I've setup a Windows server 2019 and used the Hyper-V that came with it. I've installed AD and also Ubuntu Desktop both on Hyper-V. 

I've just recently converted a Ova file from virtual Box to VHD to be used and booted up from Hyper-V. The virtual machine boots up fine with Windows XP however my mouse cannot take control of the virtual machine. I've tried all sort of troubleshooting methods there is on various websites and also installed the integration bit, uninstalled again and still no change. 

I was hoping if someone can advise and confirm what are my options here?

You'll need to manually install the integration tools via vmguest.iso You can get this file from a 2012 R2 Hyper-V host. You'll need to mount vmguest.iso image on guest, then logon and run D:\setup.exe from within the mounted image to install integration services. The file (vmguest.iso) is found in \Windows\System32 on 2012 R2 that has the hyper-v role installed.
