Can't create Hyper-V Generation 2 virtual machine: “no uefi-compatible file system was found” and “DHCP failed”

    Question

  • I can't create a Hyper-V Generation 2 Virtual Machine. There is a link to the screenshot of the problem below, but basically it says "no uefi-compatible file system was found" on the SCSI DVD and SCSI Disk, and also "DHCP failed" for the network adapter. The host and guest OS are both Windows 10 Pro x64 and my laptop has an i7 4720hq and 16 gb ram (and I don't know if it matters, but my BIOS is set in UEFI boot mode).

    Any solutions or workarounds?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Matias,

    Have you installed OS for the VM?

    If not, attach an image file as DVD drive for the VM and configure the firmware to boot from DVD drive.

    If you are booting from network adapter to implement PXE, check your configuration since it is indicating DHCP failed.

  • Try creating the VM as generation 1, instead of generation 2.
