SBS 2008 or SBS 2011 installation error “The User Role Cannot be found. Select a different User Role” on Hyper-V

When installing SBS 2008 or SBS 2011 in Hyper-V you get the error “The User Role Cannot be found. Select a different User Role” during installation.

Solution: Problem is caused by different time zone settings. If Hyper-V has enabled time synchronization, this is the default settings, the time zone of the host and the guest has to be the same. If not this error will occur and only solution is to start over and reinstall SBS.

Recommendation is to turn off time syncronization for the SBS Hyper-V.
Start Hyper-V manager, select your SBS server and choose settings.
At the management part choose Intergration Services.

Then uncheck Time synchronization.

Update: error also occurs with SBS 2011.
