Hello. I am having a lot of issues taking a physical machine backup, and making a virtual machine out of it. (MS Server 2003)
Currently we use the newest version of acronis back up and recovery (10) on our servers. I have made a .tib file from a server (which has two drives). I've taken the .tib (within Acronis) and used "Restore to a virtual machine" for vmware, and for vpc. The results are the same... blue screen of death.
I've tried importing/converting/etc - I've done everything I can. I know I can very likley get the hal/drivers/etc to make it work, but I want a solution that doesn't require extra work. (IE: If all of our servers were physically destroyed I can take all of the tibs and easily restore them into vmachines.)
I hope this makes sense. I've tried everything I can find on google/bing. I just can't get past the blue screen on boot.
PS (I tried to use Acronis Home image with plus pack for the universal restore - it wont let me do this because it is a server - is there a different version I should have?)
