You are running a Windows Server 2008-based or a Windows Vista-based computer that uses the non-uniform memory access (NUMA) architecture. When you try to start a Hyper-V virtual machine, the operation may fail because of a memory allocation issue. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:

An error occurred while attempting to change the state of virtual machine VMNAME.
‘VMNAME’ failed to initialize.
Unable to allocate 1024* MB of RAM: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service. (0x800705AA)
*number will vary based on the amount of RAM assigned to the VM

This issue occurs even when there is sufficient memory available.

  1. Throughout this great scheme of things you’ll secure an A with regard to effort. Exactly where you actually misplaced me personally was in all the facts. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more accurate here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you precisely what did work. Your article (parts of it) is highly persuasive which is possibly the reason why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, while I can certainly notice a jumps in logic you come up with, I am not really sure of how you appear to unite your points which in turn produce the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however hope in the near future you connect the facts better.
