Hyper-V virtual machines unable to start after upgrading to 2008 r2 Enterprise

Experts,
I recently upgrade windows server 2008 r2 standard to r2 enterprise (hyper-v role). The upgrade went smooth after I unistalled sp1.

After upgrading, I attempted to start the virtual machines and failed. I received error unable to initialize virtual machine.

Please advise on how to get the virtual machines back up. I am currently running updates...
I am assuming when I uninstalled sp1, it uninstalled hyper-v role?

please help..

Did you check the permission on the volume which host your VHD files to make sure they did not change post upgrade
