Hyper V - VM Creation Failed, but cannot Delete VM


  • I attempted to create several VM's using Hyper-V Manager (Windows 8) .  Each failed during creation.   Each VM that failed is listed in the selection window.  However, when you select each of these VM's there is no option to "Delete" them.   How may I remove them from the VM selection window ?  The failure error message indicated something would have to be deleted manually, but was not specific. "Hyper-V encountered an error while configuring the New Virtual Machine.   Wizard failed in rolling back the created virtual machine.  Please delete it manually afterwards".  How does one do that when there is no "Delete" option available ?  Also, the reason it failed... Failed to add device "Synthetic Ethernet Port".   How to combat this ?
