    Also, using hyper-v, I'd strongly recommend having at least one physical DC.
    i do run hyperv on full installs normally at the time i started this i was playing round with core and decided it wasnt worth it for the sake of a bit of hard drive and memory. Its an unusual site i go to that has multiple pcs physical or virtual its all single server sites though i am trying to spread the load where appropriate with hyper v but still there is still usually only 1 dc and often as not thats the base os and any vm is an o pants the printers dont like server 08r2 or some piece of software that after being in a cupboard for years is suddely invaluable or xp/win7 package creation/testing. Where hyper v has been planned in from day 1 there is usually a base 08r2 doing naff all, a dc/fileserver/filedump/printserver then a separate admin server and if needed a ts or other and usually an xp and win7 vm for package creation/testing
