Windows 7 - Dont boot after install (Hyper-V)

    שאלה

  • Hi,

    Today I was install a VM with Windows 7 Ultimate. The setup ran very fine, I've allocated 200GB in virtual HD and set 2GB to RAM.

    After the install completes, a black screen appear and Windows dont boot (or start)...

    Any tip?

  • I would also like to encourage anyone who sees this issue to contact Microsoft product support.  This is something that should "just work" and if there is a problem here we would like to figure it out ASAP.

  • Hyper-V v1 or Hyper-V R2?

    You installed Ultimate.  Have you tried Pro or business client SKUs?

  • Brian,

    I'm using Hyper-V R2.

    I've tried only Ultimate, because my license is for Ultimate. There's any trouble with Ultimate?

  • Hello Carmen,

     

    I didn't solve the trouble. I uninstall Hyper-V and install VMWare. Now, all it's working perfectly.

     

    Regards.

  • I am having the same exact problem.

    I can install other operating systems as virtual machines in Hyper-V R2, but not Windows 7. I have tried both 32-bit and 64-bit installs and after a full installation and reboot both turn up with a black screen prompting for CD/DVD....and the prompt is useless - I can neither boot to DVD again nor does it move on to booting from the hard drive.

    I have used the ISO to successfully install Windows 7 on a physical machine.

    Any ideas?

  • I am having the same exact problem, with Windows 7. Black screen, doesnt boot after putting in a user name and password.  Does it have to do somehting with the partitions?


    I am also trying to virtualize SBS 2008.  No success.  75% of the install it bluescreens, then boots to the SBS suggesting I reinstall.

     

    ANy suggesstions would be a great help.

  • Ohhh.  The server I am running now is Windows Server 2008 Standard R2.

    Having issues using Hyper-V.  Someone is suggesting that VMware is better?

  • What do you mean "doesn't boot after putting in username and password"?

    At what point int he process are you entering a username a password?  In the installation wizard.  And it is after that that it hangs?

  • More details would be great:

    1) the version of Hyper-V

    2) how the VMs are being installed

    3) where the media was downloaded from (and possibly when)

    4) the point during the instalaltion that the problem is seen.

    During your installation of SBS 2008 - what is happening at the time the VM blue screens (I am assuming it is the VM).

    We really need more information / details to make good guesses.

  • 1) Hyper-v R2 installed on a Windows 2008 R2 Std. Server.

    2) The VMs are being installed as new machines through the Hyper V Manager.  The software is being installed (SBS 2008 from the DVD)  and Windows 7 Pro (From ISO burned from eOpen Account a few days ago).

    3) *see #2 above*

    4) For SBS 2008 the installation seems to proceed fine but during one the the final reboots the VM blue screens.  When restarted a dialog box appears stating that the installation was unsuccessful and that the product will need to be reinstalled. It also suggests that the existing partitions be removed before trying again.

    For Windows 7 the installation fails after asking for a user name and password. The system will reboot then hang at the "Press any key to boot from CD screen".

  • VMware works perfectly.  However I would like to use Hyper-V since it is the only one supported by Microsoft.  Suggestions?

  • I have the same Problem and I am using Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise with Hyper-V Role as Server , and windows Seven Ultimate X64 as Virtual Machine.

     

    After the install completes, a black screen appear and Windows dont boot

    I have used my Windows Seven DVD on different Physical Machines and they are working fine.

  • Okay, I am ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED after a ton of web searching that an incredibly SIMPLE solution to this problem exists, but no one on any of these forums seems to be capable of understanding and revealing the answer... SO -- here it is:

    1. Create a new Virtual Machine on your Hyper-V (Server 2008 R2).
    2. Install Windows 7 from a DVD or an ISO file, whatever makes you happy.
    3. On the final reboot of the install, you will, of course, get the above mentioned black screen.
    4. Reboot the VM, but this time press a key to boot from the Windows 7 DVD (or boot from your ISO) so that you can get into the repair mode (recovery console/DOS prompt).
    5. Type C: to go to the C (boot) drive of your Windows 7 VM.

    Here's the magic:

    6. Simply type the following command at the recovery console DOS prompt:

    bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force

    7. type EXIT and then reboot the machine.

    ENJOY!

  • Hey

    I was seeing the same problem i.e whenever I created a VM (with win 7 os) and after install after the first boot it would go to the login prompt and then reboot and would just sit on a black screen with a cursor blinking.

    I boot the VM with iso and choose prompt and gave the command as mentioned earlier by ERIC

    bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force

    Restarted and it is working.

    Thanks

    Beautifull : Awesome

    I was suffering with this issue since the first time I installed Win7; maybe a month after the release; almost 2 years; You are an Angel

  • I would say that the thing to do is what Ben Armstrong suggested - contact Microsoft if this happens.  I've installed Windows 7 countless times on Hyper-V and never seen this problem.  I know a lot of other people that have installed it countless times without this issue.  Without working with Microsoft to get to the root cause for your particular environment, it will be pretty hard for anyone to say why it happens for some people and never for others.

  • You don't even have to boot into Repair mode, 

    1. Mount the vhd using disk managment

    2. Open a cmd prompt

    3. Insert any Windows 7 or 8 install disk in dvd drive

    4. <dvd letter>:/boot/bootsec.exe /nt60 <vhd system drive letter>: /force

    5. Detach the vhd

    6. Reboot your VM

    Saw this elsewhere, so much easier than booting into Repair.

  • After pulling out what little is left of my hair, I just realized that Eric, you are a god.

    I can't believe why Microsoft still doesn't get this resolved -- in year 2013!!!!

    The bootsect trick works perfectly -- however, for those coming later, you must first use diskpart to map the "Reserved" volume to a drive letter, and then do the bootsect trick on that drive letter.  Doing it on C: doesn't work.

  • Stephen, may you just describe it step by step?

    I tried with the Erics trick, but i gets the message in cmd:

    'bootsec.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Just ran into this same issue.

    My problem got resolved after using the x64 version DVD of Win7 (just x64 instead of the DVD that had both x86 and x64 versions).

    What I did:

    My host is Windows 8.1

    After installing Windows 7 x64 as VM on my 8.1 based laptop two days ago, I wanted to do the same on my desktop PC, but I had the same issue described here.

    I used a DVD just with the x64 version for my laptop and a DVD with both x86 and x64 version for my desktop.

    Tried repairing as advised by a post, but got the error: "This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows."

    I exported and imported the VM from my laptop to my desktop to test it and it ran with no problems.

    So I tried the DVD that had just the x64 version of Win7 and that installed without issues.

    I'm curious if this happens only when a DVD with more than one Win7 versions is used.
