While trying to deploy new machines on my Hyper-V, I faced an error.
Boot failure. Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device
It was a VHD file which I downloaded from Microsoft site. I searched for the solution on many sites and they asked to repair OS etc. In my case, it’s a VHD and I can’t do anything.
I deleted my VM many times but finally I tried something different.
In “Specify Generation” screen, by default it selects “Generation 1”. I changed it to “Generation 2” and it worked for me.
It was a simple solution and I wasted my whole day in this. Hope this blog would save someone’s day.

Wow. I never thought my non-SQL post would be more famous than SQL ones.
Thanks Dear …
I love you Dave, you saved my life !!!
I have *.VHD , the solution is not applicable since G2 cannot read vhd.
Me too – my problem was I made a Template in .VHDX but then did Gen 1 when creating it. Changed to Gen 2 and boom .. she is up
thanks worked for me perfect after unplanned shutdown Host
YOU SAVED MY DAYY GOD BLESS YOU
It worked for me too, thank you so much!
But the Windows Server 2003 R2 not supporting the generation 2. so then what would be the solution for this issue?
Thank you a thousand times over solved the problem
