Windows 10: I Installed windows10 on hyper-V using USB now I can't disable Drive
I Installed windows10 on hyper-V using USB now I can't disable Drive
I'm very new (today) to Hyper-V and VM's in general.
I followed a forum post on installing Windows from a USB stick by adding a new Virtual drive and copying the usb contents to it.
Then rebooted into the installation.
That all went fine but now when I start the VM I get two options Windows Setup or Windows 10
If I remove the 2nd virtual drive the VM won't boot so it's obvious the booting is done via the second drive.
Can anyone suggest how to get round this as I have spent a lot of time setting up the win10 with apps etc?
any help appreciated
Please post a screenshot of disk management (diskmgmt.msc from command box). This should be from within your VM when it is running with both .vhdx attached - not from your host computer.
It sounds like you may need to move your boot files but need to see what your current set up is (EFI/BIOS, partitions etc).
Thanks for your help
Since my original post I tried using MSconfig to remove the Boot option this worked but introduced a new error on boot that said
'The Task you are currently trying to do can't be completed because remote desktop is currently busy please try again in a few minutes other users should be able to logon'
I just had to press the OK button and it worked. But this was slower than the original problem and so I have restored it to the original.
You have system on disk 1 and you want it on 0. Probably the easiest way is using easybcd - see their tutorial Changing the Boot Partition
It is free but you need to click on register to download (you needn't enter any email address if you don't want to).
Alternatively you can mark disk 0 as active, remove disk 1, then boot from Windows 10 ISO (attach it to virtual DVD drive on the tools menu)and run startup repair.
Another time, by the way, it is generally easier to install using your ISO.
For hyper-V bugging you about remote desktop make sure you've set a password.
Ok Thanks I will have go and let you know how I fare
Thanks It's worked and I have deleted the second drive But I am still getting the remote desktop error!
I don't really want or need a password is this essential
For remote desktop yes it is. You can log in without password through the hyper-v console (by clicking cancel when it asks you the resolution) but if you want to use enhanced session mode or RDC you need a password.
You could just make a really simple password of 123 or something.
Note it has to be an actual password - pin doesn't work (except on console).
OK Thanks a lot ! I Just did a single letter password so not too bad lol
You have been a great help Thanks
You are most welcome
