Hyper-V Encountered an Error During the Import Operation - Windows Server 2008 VM to Hyper-V 2012 R2

Hyper-V Encountered an Error During the Import Operation - Windows Server 2008 VM to Hyper-V 2012 R2

I was able to import a Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V VM to Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V, but not able to import a Windows 2008 Hyper-V VM: "The VM version is not supported"

This error occured:

    "Hyper-V encountered an error during the import operation.

    'VM' failed to realize.

    Failed to upgrade the VM version of the virtual machine 'VM'.

    The VM version is not supported"
Solution

Copy the whole VM folder to the destination

Open the xml config file with a serious editor ( I use Notepad ++, but you could use XML notepad)

Locate the <properties> section

At the end of the section add this line: <version type="integer">512</version>

Be sure to add the line in the right position, before </properties>

Done, now your VM will be recognized as if it was created on an Hyper-V 2008 R2
