Windows 10 won't start on Hyper V

So you're like a kid on Christmas signing up for the Windows 10 technical preview. You download the iso (zzzzzzzz), load up Hyper-V and create a new VM off of the ISO. As soon as you start the VM you're hit with this error:

Fortunately, I have only seen this issue with the Enterprise version of Windows 10 and the Server technical preview but there is a quick fix. When creating the VM, you need to make it a 'Generation 1' machine instead of 'Generation 2'.

 Of course, you cannot change the generation after the machine is created so you will need to delete and recreate the VM. Party on!
