The following thread worked for me. I performed both the steps requested by lp9 and the second poster who mentioned the "net localgroup administrators service /delete" command
Diskpart commands here: hyper-v 2012, vm's wont initialize - no other error msg - Spiceworks
Diskpart only cleared attributes on one of my disks, but once I performed both those steps and created a new blank VM it worked. This worked on two machines experiencing the same issues you had. Please let me know if it worked for you as well. I haven't installed an OS yet
@stray Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for that link, the commandsWorked AFTER REBOOT like a charm, and I have Ubuntu installing now.Code:net localgroup administrators net localgroup administrators LOCAL /delete net localgroup administrators SERVICE /delete
I much rather would be using Hyper-V and now I can.
@Kari it was, like you said, permission problems!
Thanks @Stray for the solution, rep given
Ok @Kari, I'm at remove install media and press enter(VMPlayer did this automatically) what do I do now?
1. Check that the Ubuntu install media is no longer attached, eject it if needed:
2. Start the vm normally
