Some friends here on the Hyper-V team shared a PowerShell 2.0 script for getting a list of VMs:

# List VMs

$vmList = gwmi -namespace root\virtualization Msvm_ComputerSystem |`
    where{$_.Name -ne $env:COMPUTERNAME}

$vmList | select ElementName,Name,EnabledState,StatusDescriptions | format-list
