Have seen the error - Now, how are you creating this second virtual machine ?

The error seems to tell that the VHD or DVD  file is basically in use with another process

Try removing the virtual DVD drives from the VMs.  It sounds like it is not able to access them both.  If both work after the DVD drives have been removed?  Then readd them and see if they work after that.

Its either a VM with the same DVD added to it as in another vm or the vhd is the same as any other vm on that server.

please confirm your configuration

follow the link - i will check back again in an hour.
Hope this helps
