P2V Conversion - Missing RAID driver
Posted on 2014-03-19
The objective is to virtualize a custom 2008R2 server with H8SGL-F SuperMicro MB. Complicated by the fact that it still a domain controller and the single domain Exchange Server. My ESXi hosts are running 5.1.
Attempts to do a cold P2V stall at having or loading the right RAID controller driver on the Standalone Converter boot disk.
Have attempted to inject the driver, but still end with blue screen or VM menu prompting selection of a driver that isn't listed.
