Import appliance fails: VERR_NEM_VM_CREATE_FAILED

Postby koops » 7. Aug 2019, 10:53

Hi there,

After exporting my appliance and importing it back into virtualbox after updating to windows prerelease build 18950 virtualbox gives this error:

Call to WHvSetupPartition failed: ERROR_SUCCESS (Last=0xc000000d/87) (VERR_NEM_VM_CREATE_FAILED).

Stupidly, I deleted my old vdi file to save space so I can't test if the original version works on the update. However my other vm returns the same error.

I've attached the logs for reference. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

This is a common issue and is covered in posts 2 and 3 of I have a 64bit host, but can't install 64bit guests. That however, is only one of your issues...

You have allocated way more memory to the guest than you have available on the host. Your options are: a) allocate less memory to the guest, b) close some applications on the host, or c) buy some more memory for the host.

My crystal ball is currently broken. If you want assistance you are going to have to give me all of the necessary information.
Please don't ask me to do your homework for you, I have more than enough of my own things to do.
