I recently rebuilt my host Win10 machine and need to restore the Virtual Machines I had created under Hyper-V. I kept all the machines and their settings on a separate drive, but cannot get Hyper-V to recognize them.
I tried restoring (and it's various options). Each attempt presents an error "could not be realized due to validation error".
I also tried creating a new machine, using the old .vhdx hard drives. Hyper-V gives me an error regarding "uncompressed and unencrypted drives".
I want to recover the VMs as they were last used. Some are Win10 machines that are already activated.
