Hyper-V

VM won’t start with (Failed to create or access memory contents) error

This week I faced a problem for a customer, that when trying to start a VM from a Failover cluster he faces the following error message:

0x5 Access Is Denied

By trying to start the VM from the Hyper-V manager, the following message appears:

VM failed to Initialize

In addition to:

Failed to create or access memory contents

solution:

Create a new VM and attach the old VHD to it.
