Error CodeL 0x000000C4


Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V Image w/ SQL Server 2017 boots to Repair Startup after updates

Tried running:

dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

from command prompt and got an error about the scratch disk might not be large enough, but no option to change it and said it succeeded.

Rebooted, same error

Tried

bootrec /mbr and bootrec /fixboot


This is a new vm and I forgot to check the backup to add it. It is not being backed up so I cannot restore. I do have a backup of the existing state now, but I would prefer tor ecover it if possible

I have also checked hyper-v processor settings, as some posts I found, seem to suggest that it is due to a cpu settings, but options there seem to be limited
