    The error message you get is in itself quite clear: User has no permission to save on H:\HyperV\VM folder OR permissions of the VHD file itself are not OK.

    See this Microsoft Support KB article for more information and a possible fix: Hyper-V virtual machine may not start, and you receive a ??General access denied error? (0x80070005)? error message

    Good to see a nice Hyper-V answer.

    Kari should know it because he's a Hyper-V user, I can even say expert.

    File permissions aren't always clear to all users but let's hope this particular error it will get fixed soon.

    Cheers!

    Yes, basically the same error on any partitions. Built-in admin account also has the same issue.

    As in the photo I uploaded earlier, click "show detail" doesn't reveal any virtual machine ID.

    Hi there

    While not a solution to your problem - why don't you try using VMware vplayer --it's FREE and unless you specifically need any features provided by HYPER-V it works very well indeed with mostly ZERO problems. You have to disable HYPER-V first to use VMware vplayer though.

    I'm posting this on a W8.1 VM running with VMware from a LINUX OPENSUSE 13.1 Host -- no problems whatsoever. I'm running IE11 quite OK from within the VM.

    Cheers

    I already installed VmWare. I think that is what I need for the time being. I just can't stand having Hyper-V without being able to use it. That's all. Thanks. I still hope someone will have the solution for this problem.

    Luckily the problem has been resolved. I restored the whole windows partition, and now I can create a virtual machine using Hyper-V. It's possible that I messed up with permissions before. Anyway, thanks all for you support :-)
