  • SBS 2011 VM issue on Hyper-V

    Hi All,

    I have server 2008 Enterpeise with Hyper-V. I have created a VM Server 2003 std and it runs with no issues.
    I then created a new VM SBS 2011. I go through the setup wiz and get to the final page and click finish (start virtual machine when I click finish) and it starts to boot. then at 25% it fails saying

    W2k11SBSv001 failed to initialize

    I click on more information and it gives me the following with no other info

    W2k11SBSv001 failed to initialize
    W2k11SBSv001 failed to initialize (Virtual machine 2503c818-b287-49d6-8d78-cc716a6fb69a)

    so I created another VM with the same settings and called it

    W2k8V001 and the same thing happens

    Any help would ge very much appreciated as I am very new to this.

    Regards,

    Shane

    What system resources are you giving the SBS 2011 machine -- it requires 12-16Gb RAM
    What specs are the hyper-v host?
    Are any other VMs running?
