SCVMM error 3101

Whenever i try to create a new virtual machine or do a P2V i constantly get a error 3101 stating that

VMM failed to mount the VHD file
internal error code: 0x80990c1d

Recommended Action: To check device manager/system devices to ensure that virtual server storage bus is installed and functional if not, install VHD mount component of virtaul server. Restart virtual disk service.

I have followed the above actions and all the things seems to be in place.

Any Suggestion will be highly appreciated.

It seems something is either missing or corrupt with SCVMM. I would repair the installation or reinstall if it does not work.

Nothing is missing with the install, it was a clean one. I have already tried a reinstall but to no avail.
Are you trying to bring up the new VHD on a Hyper-V Failover Cluster?
Is the target path using a drive letter or a volume GUID?
Is the target volume SCSI, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, local disk?

There is no Hyper-V failover cluster involved.
The VHD is there on a Local Disk. (No shared storage is present)
I am trying to P2V on a physical host that is running Win server 2003, with Virtual Server 2005.

No it is not an IBM SAN!

However the issue got resolved, after I logged a support call in MS.

The resolution is as follows:
This issue appears if you try to use a Beta version of Hyper V with the latest version of SCVMM. The recommended procedure is to freshly install a server, apply all updates on it and then enable HyperV role on the server that is to be used as the hosting platform for virtualized machines.
