Cannot start any VM from Windows 10 pro hypervisor

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I just acquired an HP Proobok 450 G4 and have enabled Intel VTD and VTX with EPT in the bios.

    Then I installed the Windows 10 pro hyperv tools, hypervisor role and hyperv services.

    I noticed that after doing this, when I run coreinfo -v, it returns just that the hypervisor is present, therefore I assume that the hypervisor is taking control of Intel VTD/VTX.

    I create a virtual machine called Lubuntu 64 since I want to install Lubuntu 16.10 on this virtual machine, and when I try to start it in Hyperv Manager, I get the following error message:

    An error occurred while attempting to start the select virtual machine

    lubuntu 64 failed to start
    lubunt 64 could not initialize.

    No error log is reported in event viewer for application or system.

    What is wrong? Or what am I doing wrong? 

    I am lost.

    The laptop has 8GB of physical ram and have allocated 2GB to the VM. Just want to add I am booting from the ISO image and have not been able to install Linux on the vhdx disk yet due to this error.

    Virtualbox works fine.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you

    Best regards

  • I think is a kernel problem, use another version of Ubuntu on 32 bit or an older version of Ubuntu. I got same problems on CentOS.

  • Hi

    I solved my problem.

    It required a Windows 10 update.

    Originally was running Windows 10 Version 1511 (build 10.0.10586) preloaded with my HP Probook G4.

    After the update I am running:

    Windows 10 Version 1607 (build 10.0.14393) Anniversary Update

    Obviously all the tools got updated as well.

    Now works really well.

    Thanks

  • Yes, sounds like you tried to start a VM that does not have an available boot device.  Once you create the VM, the next thing to do is to install an operating system.  That generally means associating a DVD containing the installation media for the operating system and booting from it.  It can either be the physical DVD of the host or it can be an ISO file connected to a virtual DVD defined to the VM.

    Hi Tim,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I definitely have lubuntu-16.10-desktop-i386.iso associated with my boot device.

    The iso is fine, since I created a 64 bit VM in Oracle Virtualbox and I can install the Linux OS onto it.

    I am switching between the MS Hypervisor and Virtualbox by running bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto/off.

    Regards

    Alfred56.

    OK, thanks.

    I  can create a VM under Virtualbox and VMWARE workstation using the same ISO, I only have problems with Windows pro 10 hypervisor.
