BESR 8.5 bare metal restore
Posted on 2011-03-25
I am trying to virtualize my server which is SBS2003. I am using the same hardware so a P-2-V conversion isn't possible. I have a backup of the system in both nt backup format and BESR format on an external disk (USB). I have the VM loaded and assigned drive space to it. I booted the vm to the restore CD and it runs through and recovers my discs, but it won't boot. When I remove the cd and tell the vm to reboot it comes up OS not found. What am I missing? I am new to VMWare so I can believe that I have missed something. The person who was going to help me has backed out and now my business is completely down. HELP!!
