I have a host configured in Win 2012 R2 - I have configured a VM and try to install hte OS from an iso file of Win 2012 R2 - The DVD boots normally on other PCs but I cannot get it to boot ont he VM to load the OS - I can explore the DVD from the VM, I have set the DVD as the boot device but it does not go anywhere.

I have seen where it may be waiting on you to press a key to boot from cd/dvd but it doesn't show that text when just booting the VM.

Do you get an error message?

Is this Hyper-V virtual machine?

Ended up deleting the first VM and rebuilding it as a Generation #1 and all is good.
Still wonder what that generation thing had to do with preventing the iso from kicking in..
Case closed anyway
