I have a Windows 2012 Server and I have installed a Windows 8 Server as a virtual machine.  When I try to start the server I get:
Logon failure:  the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer
I've logged into the host machine as different users, all of whom are domain administrators on the host machine.

no such product as Windows 8 Server.  Vmware/Hyper-v? The virtual machine does not use your host machine credentials .. Please give a step by step breakdown of the sequence of events you used on this virtual machine from installation to now.

Create a new folder on the partition/LUN your VHDX and configuration files are stored on. Is the storage local?

In Hyper-V Manager change the Configuration and VHDX Location settings to that new folder.

Copy and paste the VHDX file(s) out of the old location into the new.

Try and start the VM.
