I have a new server 2012 DataCenter Hyper-V host, and I had created a Win7Pro VM (which was off) and had moved our SBS2003 to a second VM. I got the SBS VM running and it needed a re-start. After the re-start neither of the VMs will start.
I get the following error on both VMs; only the VM name is different:
Virtual Machine Connection
The application encountered an error while attempting to change the state of "VM-SBS2003"
"VM-SBS2003" could not initialize.
An attempt to initialize VM saved state failed.
