Unable to virtualize 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Host specs:

    2.4ghz 4 cores

    16gb ram

    64 bit windows server 2012

    I have the service hyper-V installed on the host.

    virtual machine:

    1gb ram

    1 virtual processor

    virtual hard disk

    I get the following errors:

    on install: Windows cannot be installed on this hardware.

    after install: Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation.

    if tried in safe mode: Windows cannot complete installation in Safe Mode. To continue installing Windows restart the computer.

    I get same errors even if I give it more juice:

    virtual machine:

    2gb ram

    2 virtual processors

    virtual hard disk
