P2V Successful but Hyper V Virtual, not so much.

Hello All;

I just P2V the entire environment over the past week and must say YAY except for 1 pain in the rear end!  I have a Windows Server 2012 running Hyper-V. I was able to P2V the entire server and now I'm getting the following error:

"Virtual Machine <Name> could not be started because the hypervisor is not running"

Now after hours of googling, I've tried the following:

  • Adding "hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = "FALSE" to the VMX file of the virtual machine host
  • bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto    and restarted with no luck. 

Need some insight please to get the 5 Hyper-V virtual servers running.
Thank You

Hmmmm... you want to run hypervisor in hypervisor which is not good idea except for tests, even it is possible.

Once you converted successfully this is not the right forum to ask questions.
