Hyper-V: The application encountered an error while attempting to change the state of ‘your vm’. The Operation failed because the file was not found.

This is a mostly unhelpful message – if you encounter this, try going to Media-> DVD Drive->Eject… It could be that the .iso file you’ve attached no longer exists.

It would be nice if it would tell us which file was not found in the UI. The log files will probably tell us, but why make me work so hard?
