Virtual to Physical Migration (V2P) - How to inject new scsi drivers?

Hello Experts!@

I am attempting to do a Virtual Machine to Physical Machine migration of Windows 2000. I've built a Bart's PE utility disk to assist with this. I was able to ghost the primary partition (out of two total) to a new blade, but i can't seem to get past the "inaccessible boot device" BSOD.

If a system is booting with one scsi driver...and you want to change that driver...how is this done?

should help you out. it's a bit cryptic but if you change the files around as needed in the virtual machine right before you power it down it should be boot up with the new boot.ini settings.

Change the name of the driver (buslogic *.sys to *.bak in the win32 dir)then rename the driver you are using for the new box to the old buslogic *.sys

Otherwise to a repair reinstall over the Ghosted image on the new box using the W2K cdrom.

Hi guys, neither of your suggestions worked, but i did solve my own problem...there is a utility for Bart's PE called "fixvmscsi" it does sort of a manual driver injection for Win2k and Win2k3/XP.
Your suggestions didn't work because neither updates the necessary registry settings to install the driver.

It doesn't work on NT 4.0 however...
