Hyper-V Virtual Machine could not be initialized

I am in the middle of setting Microsoft course image on some new machines we rented. The processor was i7. After importing the VMs with recommended procedures, the VMs on new i7 machines cannot be started with the error messages VM could not be initialized.

Solution, we need to tick check box on VM setting :

- Migrate to a physical computer with a different processor version


  1. A bundle of thanks for this. I created a new vm with an existing VHD image in hyper v and was having similar error. After i checked the above checkbox, it worked.
