Hyper v attempting to create VM 0x80070570 error

XenomeowXenomeow Posts: 35Member ■■□□□□□□□□
So trying to build my lab to study for the 70-410 and Hyper v is giving me an 0x80070570 error everytime I try and install 2012r2 eval. I have tried redownloading the iso from technet about seven times now and everytime I get the same error. i have successfully created a VM using windows 8.1 but 2012r2 will not install. Kinda getting annoyed, was labbing with VMware and had no issues at all. But with the 70-410 requiring hyper v know how I did a fresh install on my lab of 2012r2 with hyper v role and have been having nothing but troubles. Seriously MS get your stuff together.

    More details about the VM please?

    What Generation?
    Fixed VHD? Dynamic?

    Have you checked the hash of your iso to absolutely ensure it is correct?

    ok so its only happening when I install the data center edition on my bare metal. The standard works fine at creating new VM's. the problem being I am going to need a lot more VM's then the standard edition will allow me to have.

    Gen 2 hardware, secure boot disabled.
    fixed 127gb vhd, 1024 mb ram.

    I have not checked the hash file, but if all else fails I suppose I will.

    just checked with m5checker, seems the checksum is correct

    The Standard / Datacenter difference doesn't stop you from actually running more than the edition allows - it's a licensing issue and not one of actual limitations. Nothing in the design will stop you from running 6 VMs on a Server 2012 R2 Standard host.

    If you're running the trial / eval version on the host, and not a full blown licensed version, then I wouldn't worry about the licensing as you're technically just evaluating the product.

    Disclaimer: Obviously if this were production I wouldn't advocate it.

    Only other things I can think of:
    ISO in a location / directory that Hyper-V doesn't have permission to.
    Your boot order isn't set right in Guest Settings.

    Outside of that every time I've had it happen it's due to a corrupt ISO.

    ISO is located in the downloads folder, which was the same location I tried with the standard install. I may just switch over to the standard install if its only going to be licensing.

    if it is a corrupt ISO, I am really going to have to doubt the technet eval center seeing that i have downloaded new ISO's each time.

    so with only being able to license two vms on standard will this cause any issues with labbing IE will i still be able to run full updates and such?

    Also of note, yes the bare metal is the eval version.

    after googling a bit, it seems many people have problems with Microsoft ISOs, apparently there is a download manager you can try

    I know it feels like beating a dead horse but it's worth a shot I guess

    I've always downloaded ISOs by torrent, you can usually just search for an untouched ISO

    So looks like a corrupt ISO may have been the issue. Just tried a fresh DL from technet and it looks like it might work (or at least ti didnt crap out at 37% again)

    Seriously MS get your stuff together, this is almosrt as silly as Native Instruments trying to implement anything on windows :P

    Re: the licensing and labbing IE - you can do everything you could do if it were Datacenter.

    There is ZERO difference between the two. It's strictly a compliance thing.

    All right, two working VM's later and it is for sure a corrupt ISO issue.

    I had heard they can have issues, but this is the first time I have encountered them. Said it once I will say it again, get it together MS!
