Black screen with Hyper V-2012

Cannot boot into any version of safe mode or last known good configuration (no error just black screen remains)

Any ideas on this tried below, would be great to hear from someone who has got this working without having to reinstall

you have to diagnose this as you would a physical machine. what is happening is explorer is not starting.. so send ctrl-alt-del to the vm, start taskmanager and from task manager start explorer.. you can then diagnose from there i.e. do an overinstall of the os


Thanks David, I didnt update this as I should have

Couldnt boot into any safe mode version, tried bootsect which worked but still black screen

Will be reinstalling :)
