Hyper-V “Connect to VM” graphics issue

October 26, 2016

You may say that it’s not a migration related issue but I will disagree with you here because once you start having issues with your migration LAB, all your migration plans start falling apart… and here I am with my new blog. So imagine one day you start your VMs running on Windows 10 Hyper-V machine (Dell XPS15 laptop), right-click in Hyper-V Manager | Connect and instead of a friendly OS window it shows a half of a black screen, failing to initialize proper VM image. VM itself however runs fine under the covers and can be connected to via RDP, but in many cases where networking configuration is not cooperating or machine is not booting up, RDP access is not going to be much of a help here.
