VM won't boot from CD/DVD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I just finished installing Hyper-V on my windows server 2012 and I created My first VM. I'm trying to install OS from CD/DVD drive but it won't boot. It shows "Boot Failure. Reboot from a proper boot device..".

    I tried setting up another server the same way and the VM on the other server also shows the same error.

    I have CD set as first boot up option in BIOS. I have only one CD drive on my server which I have set my VM to start booth with.

    So, what could be the problem?

  • A. You should capture DVD from VM. This will allow VM use DVD drive that is up to this moment available for host server. After installation you should release it.

    B. I would suggest more simpler procedure:

    1. Create folder in host c: drive (or any drive available)

    2. Copy installation iso to this folder

    3. Mount iso as drive

    4. Connect media by capturing

    Regards

  • Hi ,

    Have you added DVD drive for the vm?

    Open the settings of vm and add DVD drive. If you want to use the CD drive on the host, select the physical cd/dvd drive.

    If using Milos's method, then select image file.

    Best Regards,

    Leo
