    I googled and found something - hope this helps you

    ## Conversion of powered-on Hyper-V local machines might fail
    If the source machine is a powered-on local Hyper-V machine, conversion task fails, and the following error message displays:
    Failed to create VSS snapshot of source volume. error code: 2147754758 (0x80042306).
    The following error appears in the log file:
    VSS Snapshot creation failed for the volume \\?\Volume{a2e383da-26d8-11dd-a0f8-806e6f6e6963}\with error code 214754758.
    The issue is observed if the following two VSS services are not started or are not operating properly on the source machine: Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider Service and Volume Shadow Copy Service.
    Workarounds:

    Restart the source machine and try cloning it again.
    Set Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider Service and Volume Shadow Copy Service starting mode to Automatic.
