I am trying to restore various Symantec system recovery 8.51 images that have been backed up from several different HP proliant servers. During the restore process I am asked for new drivers, but the drivers aren't accepted by the recovery process, and when the virtual machine is restarted after the restore I get a Blue screen of death. Has anyone any ideas on how to get this restore process working.
The machine I am trying to restore onto is an ML350G5, with twin XEON E5420 quad core 64bit processors, 16GB RAM, HP Smart Array controller E200i. Running Windows server 2008, and Hyper-V. The settings in the server BIOS are as directed by HP, and in fact I couldn't initially get Hyper_v to run before I had changed these settings. Hyper-V does now run. I have called this VSERVER.
One of the machines I am trying to restore is an identical ML350G5 server with the E200I array controller.
is an older ML350G4, with an HP Smart UltraSCSI RAID controller, 4GB RAM
PServer is an ML110 G5 server with a built in SATA RAID controller configured as RAID1.
I have set the virtual machine to boot from the system recovery boot CD, which boots fine, then point the recovery image to one of the backups, also choosing the options to prompt for new drivers.
During the end phase, the recovery process asks for two drivers:
one is IDE\DiskVirtual_HD________
The other driver is PCI\VEN_8086DEV_711SUBSYS_
Description: Intel Corporation, 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4/E/M EIDE Controller
(this intel driver seems a bit strange as it is quite an old driver, and as far as I can tell isn't on any of these servers)
Anyway I'm not sure where I can find the Virtual HD driver, but I have searched the Intel website for the 82371 driver, and extracted the inf file, but the option screen asking for the driver says it is the incorrect one.
I have also created a new recovery CD with this driver incorporated in it, but still no luck.
The strange thing to me is that one of the servers (SERVER1) is using the identical E200I array controller as the host machine (VSERVER), and no IDE devices, so why am I being asked for an old EIDE driver?
A bit long winded but I wanted to give as much information as possible.
Has anyone any ideas on how to get this restore process working.
