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.
