Unable To Install OS on New Gen2 Hyper-V VMs

Sun Jan 03, 2021 2:54 pm

Beyond frustrated trying to install 2019 Server OS on new gen2 hyper-v VMs. This seems to be a common complaint, but none of the fixes I've found, many of them here, are working:

- Hypervisor is run as administrator
- DVD points to a 64-bit UEFI ISO that I have confirmed bootable by creating a bootable USB drive from the ISO and booting the UEFI host server from it
- DVD is at the top of the boot order
- Secure boot is disabled
- Network adapter has been disconnected from the VM
- Changed location of DVD to "0: and HDD to "1"
- Reset permissions on the ISO, giving Everyone full control
- Shortened the ISO filename

When "Install an operation system from a bootable image file" is selected during new VM creation, and pointed to the ISO copy on the host's C: drive, nothing happens.

No "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD" prompt is displayed though it (shouldn't matter, with the DVD at the top of the boot order and no alternate bootable options). Tried the "hold a key down during boot" fix for displaying the prompt with no effect. The following boot summary is instantly displayed (no error messages, no errors in the Hyper-V event logs except "failed to load an operating system"

Virtual Machine Boot Summary
1. SCSI_DVD (0,1)
The boot loader did not load an operating system.
2. SCSI_Disk (0,0)
The boot loader did not load an operating system.
3. Network adapter (00155D141501)
A boot image was not found.

Ideas? I've burned hours on this, and the server needs to be deployed for customer this week and data transferred over the New Year holiday.
