Has anyone seen it where you clone an existing virtual machine running 2008 R2, you run through the cusomtization wizard and supply new name, license, networking, etc. the snapshot finishes and the new VM has been cloned....but when you start the VM it just keeps blue screening and rebooting.

Thanks,
Dave

I have definitely seen this before. I would try booting from Ultimate Boot CD or XP cd just to get to a command promtp. You can try this fix: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545

Thanks. I'm going to blow it away and reclone while it is powered off and not customize. I'll report back....

So, the solution is to NOT clone a VM while it is powered on. We did customize it and all seems ok...at least for this server.
