i am attempting to take a raid5 2k3 to a vhd.
i use macrium to image then to convert to vhd then reload it to 2k8 running hyper v.
the system converts and then 0x000007b error.
i have think it has something to do with drivers.
it isn't different hw b/c i am imaging and then reloading it w/ 2k8
the one i am attempting to virtualize is a raid 5 on a intel rapid storage contoller.
i think if i could make the load use IDE drivers it would work. maybe i am way off. but i believe that has something to do with the BSOD.
If i boot in safemode in the Virtual 2k3 box. it restarts after loading acpi
i have tried disabling different drivers in the registry of the vhd file by mounting it and loading the system hive.
any help is greatly appreciated..
i was needing to virtualize b/c the system i am using is the same system the 2k3 was on.
i wanted to vm so i could migrate to the 2k8 box w/o having to identical systems. keep the 2k3 DC going in hyperv.
