I need your help on this one. I don't have very much experience with virtual machines but I need to find out if it's possible to migrate live VMWare ESXi 4.0 (Free) Edition virtual machines to a Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V environment which is on different hardware?
I have tested converting a vmdk flat file to VHD using Winimage and booting it up on a test Windows Server 2012 machine running Hyper-V. The machine blue screens with 0x0000007B in a loop. My feeling is that this is due to the hardware being different?
I have looked at using Storagecraft Shadowprotect as it has built in Hardware independant restore capabilities but that would mean purchasing expensive licenses and would like to avoid that if possible.
