Creation Failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    "Error (13206)
    Virtual Machine Manager cannot locate the boot or system volume on virtual machine Test. The resulting virtual machine might not start or operate properly. "

    Could anyone tell me please why I am getting this error every time a user creates a VM via SSP? I have tried every possible configuration by changing the way a template is created or the type of VHDs used in these templates but NOTHING seems to work. I can't really think of some thing. Any help is highly appreciated.

    Server 2008 R2 x64

  • Hi,

    VHD is not having OS in it.  Can you try creating VM manually using same template in VMM console ? it will not work. You need to use syspreped VHD in template.

    Let me know if you still face any issue

    Thanks,
