Need advice on cluster consisting of 2 server 2012 r2

There are two physical servers, there are 2 licenses srv2012 R2 Std OLP.
More servers and never will be. SAN hardware, either.
Task create a failover cluster and to run 2 virtual machines Hyper-V.

I tried to do:
1. Put the OS on physical servers. Added the Hyper-V role, the DNS.
2. Did the 1st server is PDC and the other additional controller.
3. As SAN I used StarWind (installed on both servers, configured the "cluster" or as it is properly called from two SAN, i.e. "HA" on the two nodes).
4. Given the role of a failover cluster of physical servers. Began testing before deploying the cluster - problem with AD. I Leafed Through The Internet. Saw that in the environment srv2012 (unlike that of 2008) it is impossible to combine the role of a domain controller and cluster member on the same server (same OS). By the way, as I understand it, the planned configuration You created (the issue on which OS version?), quote from "In their projects, if I have a small branch office where the only two physical host that I want to make members of the Hyper-V cluster, I do their physical controllers, and cluster members
at the same time. This is a supported configuration, although it has some difficulty. "

What to do?
See this: outside of the cluster in Hyper-v to create VM on each physical server. On the 1st VM to deploy PDC, and the 2nd additional controller. Don't know - to enter the physical servers (hosts) in the domain or not (I read that for the cluster on srv2012 domain is not required).

In this case, the cluster will only run 1 VM srv2012 (because the license server 2012 standard - 2 VMS only).

In your opinion, how clever it would be to solve the problem on existing equipment?

Thanks in advance.

Generally don't do that, because all the divergence from bestpractise goes sideways.
...but if you really want:
1. take another PC, create 2 new path, raise the main and backup controller AD.
2. Configure 2 servers H-V, enter in domain
3. Create a cluster (where you store your quorum?)
4. Drag and drop the controllers to the servers of H-V
5. Asymmetrically adjust the priority of the controllers AD servers H-V

About the same problems. Two servers how to make fault-tolerant storage for virtualos(something like vSAN and Virtual Storage Appliance from VMware)? win2012r2
