exchange (depends on size of DB) can be very IO intensive during boot times.
If this is a productive system you should never turn off the exchange VM,
which could lead to a data corruption.
What happens when you wait lets say ~ 30 min....
can u ping the VM ?
can u RDP the VM ?
What interesting events can you find related to the VM start ?
PS : AV running on your host ? If yes, exclusions for Hyper-V configured ?
