This issue can also occur if cluster nodes shut down unexpectedly in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2. A hotfix is available to resolve this issue. The hotfix has a prerequisite.
This issue occurs when one of the following conditions is true:
A cluster has a storage area network (SAN) attached.
System tries to mount a volume on a cluster, and the node is not the owning node of the disk.
The disk is put online accidentally, and the node is not the owning node and it does not own the disk reservation.
Windows PE runs on a system that has drivers being online and reserved by another cluster node.
Note The Hyper-V host should enter an automatic repair process after the unexpected shutdown (also known as a dirty shutdown) if the shutdown is unexpected. As a temporary workaround, start the system in safe mode, and then restart it immediately.
