So you experience a “The Hyper-V service is not available” and when you try to start this service manualy, you’re getting: “Error 87: The parameter is incorrect.”

Error 87: The parameter is incorrect

Please note that allthough Windows 2008 is RTM, Hyper-V is still beta. I think it will be released RTM shortly too.

Your Windows Mobile (PocketPc) pda/phone has been wiped because of several reasons:
– You lost your phone, wiped it using your Outlook Web Access (or your IT department did this) and later on you found it again.
– You forgot your Windows Mobile pincode and entered a wrong code several times (default 5)

Im sorry to inform you, the data on your storage card is really gone. Microsoft did a good job on this one, it doesnt delete your data but it wipes it. So the data has been replaced by a different pattern.

It doesn’t matter if you had your storage card encrypted (if it was, a part of the key was stored on your device which is wiped as well).
Don’t try any recovery tools, thats what i did (being desperate) and the Microsoft documentation is right. 

Gone Forever
