I have Hyper-V running on a physical box running 2012 Datacenter R2. I attempted to install a new VM for Windows Server 2012 STD and unfortunately tried to attach it to the Broadcom NIC in my physical server. I know of problems with the Broadcom NIC - but forgot to create a legacy network adapter prior to installing the Server 2012 OS. Now the machine is virtually STUCK in STOPPING-CRITICAL mode.
I've tried to kill the process using Microsoft's PROCESS EXPLORER running as administrator. No go - I receive an access denied error trying to kill the process. I've tried to stop and restart the Hyper-V management service. No go - VM shows up in same state after a service restart. Tried to reboot the physical machine - reboot seems to hang indefinitely at the "Stopping Hyper-V management services..." screen and I'm forced to physically shut the machine down.
Kind of at a loss here on how to get the VM to stop. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
