I got the following error message when I try to startHyper-V virtual machine. I have mapped CD drive to another Guest Machine on the Hyper-V server. What should I do now to resolve this issue?

Hallo Jones,

To resolve that issue, you will first of all need to remove physical CD/DVD Drive from an existing Guest Machine by changing the DVD setting to None or point to an ISO file. Follow the steps below:

  • Locate another Guest machine that is configured to use the Physical CD/DVD.
  • From Hyper-V manager, you will need to select settings, and then click on the DVD drive option under Hardware.
  • Go to the right hand pane. Under the Media option choose either NONE or to an Image File as per user needs

You can also resolve the issue by opening the Guest Machine, and then click on Media under media select DVD drive in the submenu select Uncapture <Drive leter for DVD drive>
