Booting VM from an ISO create for physical box..possible? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I create an ISO of WS2008 R2  OS using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit. I burned this ISO on a DVD and could successfully got physical machine up and running WS2008R2. I now tried to create a VM with same ISO and it failed with below message.

    Is the sceanario supported. I got below error message:

    [Window Title]
    Hyper-V Manager

    [Main Instruction]
    An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine(s).

    'Physical ISO boot' could not initialize.

    The virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running.

    [Expanded Information]
    'Physical ISO boot' could not initialize. (Virtual machine ID D43DF8AF-1D62-4507-8D45-47DAAC2EABF5)

    The virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running.  The following actions may help you resolve the problem:

    1) Verify that the processor of the physical computer has a supported version of hardware-assisted virtualization.

    2) Verify that hardware-assisted virtualization and hardware-assisted data execution protection are enabled in the BIOS of the physical computer.  (If you edit the BIOS to enable either setting, you must turn off the power to the physical computer and then turn it back on.  Resetting the physical computer is not sufficient.)

    3) If you have made changes to the Boot Configuration Data store, review these changes to ensure that the hypervisor is configured to launch automatically.
