Hyper-V: Windows created temporary paging file when pagefile is set on SCSI Disk (Hyper-V VM G1)

Setup paging file on SCSI disk causes this error.


Applies To:

All Hyper-V VM Generation 1


Hyper-V VM G1 boots from IDE disk and G1 SCSI Controller is Virtual SCSI Controller.

Virtual SCSI Controller is not loaded when paging file is created.


You can use one of the following way:

1. Move paging file to IDE disk

2. Change the virtual harddisk connected on SCSI Controller to IDE Controller.



  1. Microsoft: You receive an error message after you put the page file on another drive other than the drive C in a guest operating system
