So I recently installed Windows 8 Professional on my computer and today I enabled Hyper-V with the intention of creating a Windows XP virtual machine.
I created the virtual machine with standard settings but I selected "Image file (.iso)" at the "Install operating system from a boot CD/DVD-ROM" screen. I pointed to my Windows XP ISO image and completed the wizard.
After that I connected to the newly created virtual machine and started it but instead of a Windows XP installation setup it showed this message: "Boot failure. Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device".
I tried other variations of settings. Tried mounting the image in Windows 8 and capturing it in the virtual machine but it still didn't work.
Does anybody have any idea about this?
