VM's will not initialize on Windows 10 host RRS feed

  • Question

  • This issue started out of the blue earlier this week.  I have three VM's that suddenly will not start.  I've created a new VM in a new folder path and it will not start either.  All of them give the error "failed to start" "could not initialize".  Google told me to run the net localgroup command to remove SERVICE but that didn't help.

  • I just resolved the issue.  I uninstalled a security update from 11/13/16 and a Windows update from 11/2/16 and now the VM's start.  I should have recorded the KB numbers before hand.  Doh!
