Hyper-V 2012 Gen 2 VM SCSI DVD device fails to boot from iso files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Server 2012 R2 in Hyper-V Server role for my home lab. I am trying to create a gen 2 vm, with Server 2012 R2 iso loaded in the SCSI DVD device, but every time I try to start the vm it fails to start with the following error:

    This is the current settings for the vm:

    This error occurs with any iso file loaded into the SCSI DVD device, and the error occurs even if creating a new vm from scratch. I have seen several similar gen 2 vm boot issues posted, but none with the exact issue that I'm having. The iso files all work fine when creating a gen 1 vm.
