Error: 'Element not found'

While setting up an Operations Manager 2007 R2 image on Hyper-V, I came across an error when I tried to START the virtual machine.

An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine. Could not find a usable certificate. Error: 'Element not found'

I manually stopped and started the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management Service
net stop vmms
net start vmms
... and now the virtual machine could startup.

Why did this happen??
