Remove Hyper-V role from Win10 and Re-Apply Hyper-V role (restarts needed to be done). Something messed up HyperCore service and it's much easier to re-apply whole Role than troubleshoot the problem. Data or virtual settings would not be deleted in this case.

I Turned Off Hyper_V and was directed to re-start,  I did and Re-Applied Hyper-V and was directed to re-start and I did.  My Virtual XP Machine was there and when I tried to start it I got the attached message.

Remove "missing" network adapter from guest OS. Start guest - if it starts You just have to reconfigure Host hyper-v virtual network settings, update messed virtual switch devices on Hyper-V. To check this out, go to network adapter settings on host OS. Verify from Hyper-v virtual network manager LAN virtual switch attachments (maybe removing and reconfiguring helps). After that re-apply correct LAN connection to guest system.

Example of network adapters attached, there has to be some logic errors with Hyper-v extensible virtual switch configuration. Physical HW device on host has to have only Hyper-V extensible virtual switch enabled and in Hyper-V virtual LAN device there You can enable all the other protocols and services exept HV switch itself.
