I have used the tool "Disc2vhd" from MS, to grap one of my servers.
When I try to boot the VHD in Hyper V I get an error (Descibed below)
What it boils down to is that I need to add some registry keys to the VHD file.
I want to do this from another virtual PC where I have mounted the VHD from the physical server as an extra drive so I can browse the files etc.
Can anyone tell me how to open a registry file that is different from the currently used system?
Is it even possible??
The physical server I converted is an IBM box with SCSI drives. OS is 2003SP2.
When converting a Windows XP / Windows 2003 machine with P2V utilities, a STOP: 0x0000007B may occur during boot in Hyper-V. (Pressing F8 during boot and selecting the option to "Disable automatic restart on system failure" will reveal the blue screen error code.) Typically this indicates the lack of a necessary driver required by Hyper-V virtual hardware (IDE channel).
