Shutdown a VM yesterday. The machine installed one windows update before shutting down. I don't know what update it did. Today, I am unable to restart the machine. Please see attached screen shot. Note that other virtual machines are currently running on the same Hyper-V server. Those were not shutdown or restarted.

I can't locate the VHD file for the said VM. It's not in the specified folder location in the VM properties.

Problem is that I was trying to start the wrong VM. The VM's were mis-named. VM name that matches machine name is just a dummy VM. VM with abstract, meaningless name is the one that I needed to start. Working now.
