Chaning UUID on Boot drive
Posted on 2014-03-06
I have an issue where in my "greenness" I made a Windows server VM, and made copies all over the place. this worked fine for a while, but now my backups are running into issues. It's all because the DISK UUID's are the same on a few servers.
Long story short, I can't use Sysprep to change them because if I do, I think I will lose a lot of data and/or settings.
so I am looking into other options. one option was "diskpart" using the command "uniqueid disk=<NEWID>" this would work, but since it's on a boot drive, it crashes and tells me that the drive is no longer accessible.
is there any other way to change the UUID of the boot drive?
