Try enabling CONSOLE_CMD (in config/general.h) and CONSOLE_FRAMEBUFFER 
(in config/console.h) and use a command such as "console -x 800 -y 600" 
to switch into a graphical framebuffer mode.  That should bypass the 
bizarre text window that the Hyper-V G2 firmware seems to have created.

Also, you should probably use iPXE's native Hyper-V network card driver 
(netvsc) rather than the SNP driver.
