Windows Hyper-V server will not start. Currently in "Saved" state

One Virtual server is in "saved" state.   I have tried to start it but it fails.  This is a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V server.

Is there a way to fix this?

I'd start at looking at event logs to see what errors are showing up when you try to start it.

Why does it fail?  Error messages?  Disk space?  Event Log entries?  You really need to provide more information...

The only error I found was "Failed to create a new partition"

Out of curiosity, how much free RAM is available on the host and how much RAM does the VM want to use?
