Anyone here know of any work dealing with detection of hyper-v virtual machines? Most research I find references VMware and virtualPC

check bit 31 of eflags register, it's 1 if Hyper-V is running

check HKLM\System\\CurrentControlSet\services\vmicheartbeat key + "virtual hd" string is used in STORAGE_DEVICE_DESCRIPTOR.Product

eflags doesn't work . its the same on both vm and non-vm.

yes, I misremembered. :-(
it's actually bit 31 of ECX after CPUID.EAX=1

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
bool x=0;
__asm
{
        pushad
        pushfd
        pop eax
        or eax,0x00200000
        push eax
        popfd
        pushfd
        pop eax
        and eax,0x00200000
        jz CPUID_NOT_SUPPORTED ;Are you still alive?
        xor eax,eax
        xor edx,edx
        xor ecx,ecx
        xor ebx,ebx
        inc eax ;processor info and feature bits
        cpuid
        test ecx,0x80000000 ;Hypervisor present
        jnz Hypervisor
        mov x,0
        jmp bye
Hypervisor:
        mov x,1
        jmp bye
CPUID_NOT_SUPPORTED:
        mov x,2
bye:
        popad
    }
    if(x==1)
    {
        MessageBox(0,"Hypervisor detected","waliedassar",0);
        ExitProcess(3);
    }
return 0;
}
