Hyper V and Windows 10 – Cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms

#Windows #HyperV #todo

I tried setting up a new Windows 10 VM in Hyper V with default options, but I sometime receive the following error when going thru the installation:

Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms. Make sure the installation sources are valid and restart the installation.

I thought it was an issue with my Windows 10 ISO, but the MD5 checked out OK.

I found that the fix is to change the Minimum Ram setting in the Dynamic Memory option from 512 MB to something like 1024 MB and it boots up OK.
