Cannot start Newly Created Virtual Machine on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Having trouble getting a NEW Virtual Machine Instance to run on my Win 10 Pro PC in Hyper V.

    I get an error: "The application encountered an error while attempting to change the state of My Virtual PC"

    I enabled Virtualization in my BIOS.

    I can't see any relevant logs in the System Event Log.

    I used coreinfo to verify that Hypervisor is present and that my PC supports the following:
    * VMX - hardware-assisted virtualization
    * EPT - extended page tables (SLAT)
    * URG - unrestricted guest

  • Hi Justin,

    Please check the event log in Event Views > Windows Logs > Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > Hyper-V-VMMS and Hyper-V-worker, check if there's any error message in the log, if yes, please provide the error message for troubleshooting.

    Thanks for your time!

    Best Regards,

    Anne

  • Hi Anne,  

    Thanks for the post. 

    The ONLY error log recorded was for the Hyper-V-Worker.

    Error message: Virtual Machine Worker Process initialization has timed out, and will terminate.

    BTW - I am not convinced my BIOS is all that great.  My Core i7 Sony Laptop is maybe 4 years old.  There is only one setting to enable "Intel(R) Virtualization Technology".  Although Core Info did show it was theoretically working.

    FYI - One of my programmers suggested I try "Virtual Box" which may work better.

    Please check if the hardware support virtualization:
