I have moved all users to a new 2013 Server and all but one PC is Win8.1 pro. I have a legacy application that i need to run for the next 6 months. I have created a .TIB from Acronis of a old working XP PC then converted it to a .VHD with no errors. when i start the VPC from the Hyper V manager it starts to load but get a very quick Blue screen then it goes to F8 options, boot to safe mode options. Not sure what i am missing?

Thank you.

It's the typical 0x0000007b boot error, right? (You can check it by disable reboot on error during the F8 menu).
It's the different storage drivers it uses. You have to try to match it (if at all possible). For instance, if the PC had a VIA IDE driver to boot from (because the chipset is VIA), and the default storage adapter of the VPC is an Intel IDE, BEFORE you make the .TIB file, you already have to have set it in the device manager (if it doesn't work, use the most generic driver available, usually pciide.sys and atapi.sys), and then shutdown. No make the image and proceed as before.

Also match this setting in your Hyper V manager (set controller to IDE).
