Hi Guys,
I have a Hyper-V VM.
This machine was converted from a physical machine with no issues.
When it was physical I had 2 hard disk installed which was transfered across to the VM.

I now wish to remove the second HDD from the VM, but when I do so it gives me an error message. (see picture)

This seams to be an Hyper-V issue as if I add second HDD to a freshly created VM I get the same issue.

I can change the attached HDD to a new one or an existing one but I cannot remove it completely.  I can add and remove a DVD drive.

A workaround I have done is to add a new second HDD to the VM by creating a new one of 2GB and connecting it - This adds a small second drive to save space but is not really what I want.

Does anyone have any ideas regarding this.
