Hyper-V VM error on boot up, READ ONLY ACCESS ERROR

In a bit of a pickle....

I wanted to move a hyper-v vm to another hyper-v server, so, instead of using import/export, I just copied the .VHD file over to the new server (I know, I know, it doesn't work that way...).

So, I copied it back to the original server, tried to restart it, and I get the following error:

"an error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine"

XXXX failed to start.

Failed to power on with error 'General access denied error'

So, I tried the ICACLS option here:


But it threw an error about the (F) not being relevant (at the end of the ICACLS CLI command.

Any ideas?
