Create VM Role from VM


I am new to creating VM Roles. Our Biz Talk engineer recently created a development VM with BT, SQL, visual studio and related software pre installed. I was asked to use this VHDX and build a Biz Talk VM Role. I was able to sysprep and generalize the OS drive. The VM Role deployment fails when it reaches the customization stage. The console from the host shows a green screen with a message that reads: Boot Failure. Reboot and Select proper Boot Device or insert Boot Media in selected boot device.

My question, can you create a VM Role around a pre-configured VHDX file such as this one?
