    Win10Pro: Updated to 1703 - Hyper-V 0x80070005 Error on VM


    I've been running Windows Home Server 2011 in VM on my Windows 10 Pro Machine for a couple years without a hitch. Once I updated to 1703 last week, I'm receiving error 0x80070005 (see picture) and the VM won't start. Does anyone know of a work-around that won't entail me either having to downgrade or reinstalling the VM?

    Thank you very much!

    Try this:

    Backup the VHD / VHDX and possible AVHD / AVHDX (checkpoint) files of your VM.

    Open VM settings, select DVD Drive. If an ISO is added as CD/DVD, remove it selecting None or completely removing CD/DVD drive:

    On left pane, select Hard Drive. Select New and go through New Virtual Hard Disk Wizard to set up a temporary, dynamically expanding dummy VHD with default settings:

    Save settings, run VM which now fails to boot.

    Turn of VM, in settings add a CD or DVD (ISO) if needed, change VHD back to original VHD or VHDX. Notice that if checkpoint exists, the correct VHD to select here is the most current AVHD or AVHDX file, the one with latest time stamp.

    The above process rewrites file read / write permissions for VM configuration file. Come back if this does not help, we'll think something else.

    You are welcome :)

    Forgot to mention in my previous post that you can delete the temporary VHD you created when done.
