    Could you please try this and see if the same error is shown:

    Start the New Virtual Machine Wizard (right pane, New > Virtual Machine). On the first dialog of the wizard click Finish:

    This creates a vm with default 127 GB VHD, no install media, no network. Connect and start it:

    If it works you will get this:

    If not you will get the same error message as before, about not being able to initialize and start the vm.

    Oh Kari, I'm sorry but this will have to wait. Some how after switching disks around and upgrade installing(keeping files only), where one came up Home, then I had to image Pro and upgrade installing pro(although save files only) messed up my Libraries partition on my 2nd internal drive and I am running chkdsk /f /r F: and the partition is a Terabyte large, it will probably be running when I go to bed later. This means right now I have no access to my VM folder

    Nothing to be sorry about @Kari. It's cases like this we learn something. And I learned, UNPLUG THE DARN 2nd internal, NO MATTER WHAT #
    I was lucky it stayed NTFS and didn't go RAW. And I will definitely make a copy of it, on an external disk, tomorrow afternoon(if it can be saved, I have no wish to re-rip hundreds of CD's, my wallpapers and documents are on OneDrive, but the music was just too large. I can now understand why some uploaded their video collections).

    @Kari either I'm so <expletive>ing good or I'm <expletive/>ing lucky. First I had to do the chkdsk, but still had no access to the partition. I saw that it showed up in Disk management, optimize drive, device manager, and of course file explorer. Then I looked at the properties, and BOOM-- not one permission. So I opened properties for the neighboring partition, and basically set them to the same. Now I have access again.

    Anyhow I still can't create a normal machine, and I was able to do your test, and it failed too, sorry

    I am totally lost. I have nothing else to suggest than to try to go through all possible BIOS / UEFI settings and see if there's a mystery setting or two that need to changed.

    Sorry Cliff.

    @Kari I just reformatted my Windows 8.1 System Image USB 3.0 ext. disk backup(no way I'm ever going back now), and making a backup copy of my Libraries now.
    The above was definitely a wake up call, to not trust a 2nd internal, if the system disk can't read it, or I forget to disconnect when clean installing....

    Hey @Kari, I just turned Hyper-V off in Programs & Features(to install VMPlayer again, as it seems Hyper-V doesn't want to work on my system), here is a windowshot of System Information, at the bottom, everything is as it should be.

    Any comments or further tests & instructions before I reinstall VMPlayer(I would much rather use Hyper--V and not have to go 3rd party). I'll hold off until you tell me you ran out of ideas.

    No, no ideas. I'm totally lost with this weird issue of yours.
