Hyper-V An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine(s)
Posted on 2014-10-21
The physical machine is a HP ProLiant ML 350 G6 running Windows Server Core 2012. Before this machine was shipped off to production use in another country I set it up and advance with two virtual machines. Both of them were running fine when it left my office.
When it arrived in the host country and was powered up I could not start the virtual machines giving me the error message Hyper-V An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine(s). I have since completely deleted the VM's removed the hyper-v feature, restarted it, re-installed the feature and re-set up the machine from scratch. I still can not start the VM getting the same error message.
I have verified that both visualization options are enabled in BIOS. (HP BIOS D22)
Intel(R) Virtualization Technology is Enabled
Intel(R) VT-d is enabled
When the machine boots and it shows processor information it states that Hyper threading is enabled.
If I can't get the VM to start today our next option is to re-install the operating system and to try again. I don't know what else to do at this point.
