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.

Hello,

Install Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), Free Download available as Trial Edition (SCVMM 2008 R2) or Release Candidate (SCVMM 2012).

With SCVMM do a Online Physical to Virtual Conversion of the System (P2V) and you receive an storage independent vhd file.

Sincerly, Shrek

Well, personally, I think you're just looking for trouble trying to do this.    VMware certainly has major problems combining fake raid adapters with VMware and it flat out isn't supported.

But if you must, here is a nice link with screen shots and a process to set up, test, configure ...

Note, you can pretty much guarantee data loss unless these are SAS or enterprise SATA disks.  Don't even think about doing this with desktop class SATA disks.
