I have a windows 2000 server that I need to do a P2V.
Disk2VHD is not compatible with Windows 2000, are there any other free utilities that will convert a windows 2000 server to a .VHD file for Hyper-V?

SCVMM 2008 can do this, given Server 2000 minimum requirements of SP4 and 512mb RAM.

Gunter,
 SCVMM is a fair expensive application, are the any free of cheaper ones?

You may be able to use XenConvert..

Worst case scenario do a full ntbackup of the machine, and do a base install on the target VM then restore over top of the new install (make sure it is the same SP)

You could try to image the machine using ghost or driveimagexml. Then create the base virtual machine then install the image to the virtual hard drive.

Is this true Windows 2000 installation or upgrade from NT to 2000?

Nox, it is a full Win 2000 (not an upgrade from NT).

I have migrated many machines with it. And had problems only with 2000 Server that was upgraded from NT to 2K.
