SQL Server ejecutando en HyperV despliega el siguiente error Virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running. Boot Configuration Data.

Si por alguna razón usted edita el Boot Configuration Data debe ejecutar el siguiente comando después de la edición: bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto Si no lo hace cuando intente levantar la máquina virtual de SQL SERVER  se desplegará el siguiente error “virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running”.   Saludos,   Ing.

SQL Server running in HyperV displays error: Virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running. Boot Configuration Data.

If for any reason you edit the Boot Configuration Data be sure to run the following command after the edit: bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto If you don’t do it you will run into an error saying that your SQL Server virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running and then you will be presented with three possible errors, usually the main cause is where changes have been made to the Boot Configuration Data or BCD. This can also happen if you had sysprep'ed images with Hyper-V.   Regards,   Ing.
