  • Hello,

    I am using windows 2012 hyper-v server core edition with below config which free from Microsoft since last 8 months.


    Dell R730 with 32 GB Memory


    Raid 5 with 1 hot spare ( C:\80 GB, D: 2.2 TB)

    Last week my server suddenly gone down and giving me message that " OS not found". I was trying to repair OS but my C:\ drive showing totally empty and D drive all VM and their config file deleted automatically.I logged case with dell they not found any hardware failure in logs.

  • Was this a trial version of Hyper-v server 2012?

  • you got hacked dude....... the only fix for you is a back up copy or to reinstall 

    i have had that happen to mine more then once 

    what has happened is some one used the BCD commands on your drives deleting the boot manager files and oops it will cause your OS to disappear you may be able to fix that using BCD Edit COMMANDS

    before you reinstall when you get your rig fixed make sure you firewall the COMMAND prompt IN and OUT
