Hyper-V error

I am running Microsoft Server 2008 R2 patched out and attempting to run a Hyper-V session but can't seem to get it to go.

I get the following error in the Error Log:

'New Virtual Machine' could not initialize. (Virtual machine ID 36DB615D-5440-456E-A5D3-2902900C8562).

It's a brand new i3-2400 on a DP67BA Motherboard with 16gb of RAM and a clean 750gb HD.

I've verified that the bios is the latest release and that Virtualization is on in the bios.

Any ideas?

Also, the Execute Disable Bit Functionality should be enabled. I’ve checked - i3 supports it by may be it is not enabled in the BIOS?

No need of SP1 to run Hyper-V.

Do you have an antivirus running on the server? If yes, you need to exclude the VM configuration and VHD folders from it.

What is the event ID ?

Is this the first VM that you create or an existing one? Do you have problems with other VMs?

Event ID is 3040.

I've never created a VM before and this is a test system I am trying to configure before I start to use it.  Needless to say, I'm a little bit frustrated by it at this point.

No AV on the server.  Just a new install of Server 2008 R2.

I just read that SP1 must be installed.  Downloaded and installing now.  Will follow upon completion.

Hyper-V runs but the VM's do not.  I apologize as it's an i5-2400 and it does support, and is turned on in bios.  I'll check the EDBF in the bios after SP1 installs.

Thanks!

After I installed SP1 the VM's would start.  I'm now attempting to install SBS 2011 NFR but think I may have a bad .iso file as it craps out at 24% each time.

I'll keep you posted on how this goes.

Bad .iso.  after download again, installed fine.  Was surprised to find out that SP1 was the culprit but found an interesting article where it was working for everyone.

I'll still aware points because I'm grateful for the help!

Thanks again
