Installing Hyper-V in Windows Server 8 Beta

If you want to try Windows Server 8 Beta, explicitly the feature Hyper-V, you can have some problems if windows local settings are configured in some third languages. I had this problem with my country settings (Slovenia).
When I tried to install the Hyper-V role, I always get an error and I couldn’t install the role. This has changed when I modified the language settings in US and rebooted the machine. After this change  I could successfully install the Hyper-V role.
From this I jump to conclusions that if you want to avoid this problems, you have to set the language settings to US..
