Hyper-v on windows 8; Unable to intialize
Posted on 2014-09-04
I am trying to setup my lenovoT420s Windows 8 laptop with hyper-v and create a VM. I have enabled virtualization in the BIOS, installed Hyper-v, ran through the setup wizard to create a VM. Pointed it at an ISO for the OS.
Once I complete the wizard and try to start the VM I get the following error message:
"The application encountered an error while attempting to change the state of 'VMNAME'. 'VMNAME' could not initialize"
When I look in Event Viewer the event ID: 3040 is logged.
I am by no means a Hyper-V expert so my guess is that I have a setting wrong or something easy, but I have no idea. Can you guys help me out?
