Errors booting a Nano ISO from a VM

Errors booting a Nano ISO from a VM

Q. I created a Nano Server ISO using the Nano Server Image Builder however when I try and build a VM from the ISO it fails to boot.

A. This is because if you build an ISO file designed to deploy to physical hardware it will not have the Hyper-V drivers present which means it will not work in a VM. Instead you need to build images that are targeted for Hyper-V VMs.
