Hi this is my first post but I am really confused as to an issue with hyper-V

Whenever I go to open the virtual switch manager, it says; The operation on computer 'DESKTOP-V1A0142' failed: Generic error. Is there anyway to fix this. I have not yet created any switches because it won't let me.

A:Hyper-V error when creating virtual switch.

Hi Nukeproof, welcome to the Ten Forums.

First thing to check is that the Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch is enabled in your NIC's Properties:
If it is totally missing click the Install button and install, it, you'll find it under Protocol:
Install if needed, enable it and reboot and try Virtual Switch Manager again.

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro with Hyper-V enabled. When I had Windows 8 I could install a Virtual switch with out any problems, since upgrading I can not install a Virtual Switch with External or Internal settings.

Not sure if this is relevant or not but when I look at the Ethernet properties never "Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch" or "Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol" are ticked. I have tried ticking them but get the error message "Could not add the requested feature. The error is: The data is invalid". I have checked that I am using the latest and correct driver for the card.

Any help gratefully received.

A:Can not install Virtual Switch external in Hyper-V

I think it is a hardware problem - when I switch on the computer today there was no internet connection. Looking in the Device Manager there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the Broadcom Netlink and the message says "this device cannot start (code 10).

I will get a network card and see what happens!

I'm using an AlienWare M14 machine. I tried to create a virtual machine locally using Client Hyper-V on Windows 8 Pro, but it still doesn't work (took me a lot of time). I added the Hyper-V features in "Turn windows feature on or off", and all of the requirements to run Hyper-V are fulfilled (SLAT, BIOS, 64 bits, ...) (I attach the msinfo32 output in this post). At the last step in creating a virtual machine, it says "... General access denied error... (0x80070005)" (for details, check my attached image). I googled, tried some solutions but still no luck so far.

Thanks for any help.

Hi All,

Getting a strange error with Hyper-V on Windows 8 Pro x64.

When I try and add a virtual switch I get:

Error Applying Virtual Switch Properties Changes
Failed while adding virtual Ethernet switch connections.
Ethernet port '{a bunch of stuff}' bind failed: The data is invalid.
(0x8007000D).

There doesn't seem to be much on google that relates to this (in particular the bind failed: the data is invalid part).

Anyone have a clue what the cause might be?

Cheers

A:Hyper-V Error Adding Virtual Switch - Ethernet Port Bind Failed

can be many thing, in 3 or 4 years that I'm using Hyper-V I never encounter it, you need some networking knowledge to play with virtual switch, but usually 0x8007000D error are due to files corruption or permissions, try to run hyper-v management as admin.

I have a Win8-64 system hosting a Win8-32 VM. A physical Wifi adapter provides Internet sharing, and a virtual switch provides Internet access to the guest VM via "internal network".

However, the Win8-64 host seems to be confused as to which adapter provides Internet access. If I delete the virtual switch, the Wifi adapter works fine. If I create a virtual switch, the system works initially fine with both host and guest accessing the internet. However, on wake-from-sleep the host loses Internet access while the VM still retains access!

My "layman diagnosis" is that the virtual switch bypasses somehow the host. I am getting rather desperate about this behavior, and I haven't been able to find any advice via Google. Can somebody enlighten me on how to instruct the host to always poll the physical adapter for Internet access?

many thanks in advance!

A:Weird Hyper-V virtual switch behavior

I should mention that of course I could connect the VM through an "external network". But then I would have two different IP addresses for guest and host - which is OK in my home network, but horrible anywhere else. In a hotel, I would have to buy two access codes for guest and host! Hence, NAT is my only viable option.

I'm trying to create a virtual USB drive to use for Windows To Go inside client Hyper-V. Is this even possible? I've attempted to create a VHD on the host (Running Windows 10 Education), setting it to offline and then adding it to the client (Windows 8.1 Enterprise)
on the SCSI controller. The client can then see, use the drive, and can be added or removed while the VM is running but when running the Windows To Go wiz it doesn't show up as an available USB drive.


If this is possible, what am I missing? I'd appreciate any help you can offer.

May I ask why you would like to enable the Hyper-V Extensible Switch? It is needed only when you have created Hyper-V virtual network switches, which your screenshot clearly shows you have not done. Even then it does not need to be manually enabled, the Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager does that for you, disabling everything else in your native physical network adapter's properties, only enabling the Hyper-V Extensible Switch.

Screenshots from my PC showing how the properties are set when an external virtual switch has been correctly set up. Notice that these changes have been automatically made by the Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager, I have had no need to edit the properties manually.

The host physical NIC properties, everything else disabled, only the Hyper-V Extensible Switch enabled:


And the properties of the Hyper-V external virtual switch which at the moment takes care of my network traffic, over the Hyper-V Extensible Switch on my host NIC:

I have succesfully used a Hyper-V virtual switch connected to the wireless adapter in my laptop. All my VM's could access my LAN independently, and could get an ip address from the DHCP server. This means, AFAIK, that my wireless adapter can and does opererate in promiscuous mode.

This worked up to build 10586. Today, I upgraded to build 11102, and this setup no longer works. It appears that wifi adapters are simply not supported with Hyper-V virtual switches. Bummer.

When you try to configure a wifi adapter in a virtual switch, it is not simply grayed out, or otherwise made impossible, but it tries to go ahead and then gives an error message (see attachment)

This does not make sense. There is no other bridge or switch configured.

I found two work-arounds:

- configure the wired ethernet adapter to the virtual switch, and create a bridge connection between the wired and the wifi adapters. For me this does not work, because I get an other error trying to create the bridge connection, which I will report in an other thread.

- use ICS. This works, but has the huge disadvantage of having a NAT layer between the VM's and the rest of my network.

Has anyone experimented with this, too?

Hi,

I had Hyper-V and Ubuntu running on Windows 8 no problem. I've since done a fresh install to 8.1, and I can no longer create an External Virtual Switch. The button for "Create Virtual Switch" is grayed out when I select "External". I can create Internal and Private switches, but not External. There's no error or message so I'm having difficulty troubleshooting. All of the tutorials I've seen don't talk about any configuration I would need to do before creating an external switch. Any ideas? I have the default Windows 8.1 firewall and antivirus stuff.

Thanks,

Hello, I have installed hyper-v on a lenovo thinkpad t470 (and tested this problem on 3 other t470 thinkpads). The thinkpad has: a) an Intel RJ45 adapter b) a Sierra wireless adapter EM7455 c) an Intel wireless 8265 adapter Hyper-v does work correctly as long as there is an RJ45 Ethernet cable connection plugged in (and connectivity). When you remove the RJ45 connectivity it instantly disables the wireless adapter (intel 8265), whatever you try the wireless adapter remains unusable. As a test, I also upgraded the intel 8265 adapter to an intel 9260 adapter ... but the problem remains. I have to say that they both use the same intel driver. If you try to enable the device in the computer management console, it is instantly disables it again after a few seconds. This seems to be specifically related to the lenovo t470 laptop as we don't have that kind of problems on other laptops. I also tried to enable/disable some BIOS options etc ... Has anyone experienced similar issues or has any ideas how to solve the problem? I would really appreciate some help as I have absolutely no ideas ... what else to try.

The external drive is formatted as NTFS, so the second part does not apply.

The iso does mount if I copy it to an "internal" drive in Hyper-V (C drive in my case).

Hi,
Microsoft hyper-v network switch default miniport is hosted by Hyper-V which is a virtual device
And responsible for Hyper-V network switch. Code 39 states for Windows cannot load device driver properly, in this case, it might cause bad compatibility of adapter driver and chip set driver after a Windows update recently. You could restore you system
to earlier point if this issue happened recently. Also you could try updating all network and chipset driver see if it changes the situation. If you have no idea about when this issue happened and driver update doesn?t help. Refer to edmis_ci?s reply in this

A:How do you switch between Hyper-V VMs with a hotkey ?

On a single display system there's no way to do that. On dual / multiple display systems you can use ALT + TAB by first making a display not currently showing a full screen vm active, then switching task with ALT + TAB.

The same can be done on dual / multiple display systems easi and fast using the Task View button.

Hey guys

Was just wondering. If I have a Licensed Server 2012 R2 running 3 Hyper-V machines, can I use 3 NEW, never activated OEM Licenses for Windows 7 Professional to activate on the virtual machines?

Under the FAQ OEM licensing it says that it can be used for 1 install of either Physical or Virtual.
http://www.microsoft.com/OEM/en/Pages/support-faq.aspx#fbid=0mG9cN9s-3N


Q.Can I install OEM software on a virtual machine (VMware)?


A. You can install OEM software in a virtual environment as long as you have a separate license for each instance of the software. It is fine to use the OEM version as long as it is properly licensed. To be clear, a separate version of the
software must be installed for both the ?standard? and ?virtual? installations.


Please advise.

Hi guys,

I enabled Hyper-V feature in Windows 10 but unable to create a virtual switch. I tried to create private and internal types of virtual switch but every time the process stuck on "Applying changes".

What could be the reason of that?

Thank you.

We are needing to create a piece of software that will generate a list of unique links that will allow an organization to email a link that will allow the person receiving the link to complete a test online.

Does any one know if this can be done with Access, Excel or some other existing piece of software?

Thank you!

After i updated to Windows 8.1 Enterprise from Windows 8 Enterprise, Hyper-V does not function correctly.
When I add an iso image to a new virtual server or start one of my existing, I can see the iso file is loaded in the bottom thumbnail.

But when I connect to the virtual server it just says: Connecting to virtual server... and it times out after 5minutes.

All my virtual servers are running locally, they are able to start and are running fine, I just cannot connect to them.
Also the ability to turn virtual servers off tends to hang and I have to kill the processes and restart the services for it to stop.

Does anyone know of a workaround for this problem?

A:Hyper-V stuck at connecting to virtual server

Hi there,

If you are running VM(s), the Host VM should have plenty of RAM, just trying to confirm.

Have you tried shutting off some of your VMs, and try to run one for now, then connect to it?

Hi There

I am using windows 10 Pro, and had a virtual machine installed using Hyper-V with two virtual HDD in that VM.

Recently I had some problem with my Windows 10 OS and had to reset my windows with keeping all the files and settings, and it installed a new windows 10 for me, and also I cleaned the old windows folders.

Now the problem is, the old virtual hard disk space still showing as used within my current disk space,
i.e.
Total HDD capacity: 500gb
Total current file size: 30.9 gb
Free space: 342gb only!!!

The reset of the space was allocated to virtual machine in my previous windows installation, and is there any way that I can delete the VHD and have the space into my current disk space?

Your advice is highly appreciated

Thank you

Regards,
Shajil

A:Virtual Hard disk created in hyper-v

That 2nd picture only shows the size of directory d8e6.... not the whole drive. The whole drive you have used ~120GB as shown in top picture.

Try downloading Treezize free and run as administrator - it will show you what is taking the space and where..

By default Hyper-V disks are stored in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks\ so probably they'll be under C:\Windows.old\Users\Public etc but it will be easier to look with Treesize.

Upgraded my win 7 pro that had virtual XP mode to win 8.1 pro. Everything from Win 7 came with it including my install programs. Noticed the virtual xp file .vmcx is there but can't access it. So I installed Hyper-V and got to the point of connecting to Virtual Hard Disk. Noticed it creats a .vhdx file. I assume this would be a new file with nothing I had on my old .vmcx file. How do I get my old virtual files over to the new one?

If I can't would I be able to install the virtual file that I got from Microsoft's website, WinXpVirtual6.1KB958559x64RefreshPkg.msu (it included a license key), or I need to have another installation disk that has Windows XP with a license key?

You can't use XP Mode with anything other than the windows 7 that it came with. You'd need to obtain another xp license to set it up in a virtual machine

Greetings.

I set up Hyper-V in my Win 10 Anniversary install and created a Win 10 Virtual Machine which is fully activated.

I tried setting up a picture password for this VM. The Picture Password option was not available but I got it to show using gpedit. I then set a Picture Password but when I reboot, the Picture Password does not show up.

Is it possible to use a Picture Password in a Hyper-V VM?

I am preparing to go to Windows 8 but I teach a lot of workshops. Most of the time in the workshops, my students use virtual images that I build.

If I build an image on Win8 in hyper-v, will my students be able to run this image on their Win7 boxes? They will be 32bit images. If they can't, I'm pretty much hosed since I have to be able to provide images that can be run on Win7 for quite a while.

Thanks!

A:Run Win8 Hyper-V image on Win7 Virtual PC

Hi there
I believe Hyper-V images Can be converted back to VM's that Virtual PC can handle on the W7 boxes - but it's a task as far as I can see that is NOT for the fainthearted.

Threads from THIS Forum should put you on to the right track.

Migration from MSVS 2005 to Hyper-v and the reverse

Test the VM's yourself though on a W7 box --remember also that VMware and Vbox products can't run on W8 while HYPER-V is enabled and the reverse is true too.

Here's how to convert to VMware type vm's too -- this could be a better idea than virtual PC since VMware player is FREE and reliable so the client W7 machines shouldn't have any problem installing VMware player.

Convert Hyper-V to VMWare - Blog

Converting the SharePoint and Office 2010 Information Worker Virtual Machines to VMWare from Hyper-V ? Geoff Varosky's Blog

Good luck with it -- please post how you got it to work if it all turns out OK. There are tools around from converting one virtual image to another -- but you won't simply be able to take the HYPER-V virtual machines and boot them up into Virtual PC just "as is".

My Windows 10 Hyper V Virtual Machine has the screen resolution stuck at 1024 X 768. I tried installing the NVidia video driver from the lenovo Web site within the guest operating system but still I am not able to change the screen resolution. Any ideas on how I can fix this issue so that I can run the virtual machine at a better screen resolution? When I try to change display adapter properties all I see is a greyed out 1024 X 768 display resolution:  When I List All Modes from within the virtual machine I only see 1024 X 768. 

A:P70 Hyper V Virtual Machine Resolution stuck at 1024 X 768

I figured it out. The solution was to remove the 3D Graphics adapater I had added to the VM configuration. Now I'm trying to figure out how to get sound to turn on in the VM.
