Host: Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter
VM OS: Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise 64-bit
I recently converted a VMWare VM to Hyper-V and was using the legacy NIC to get everything up and running and install Hyper-V Integration Services.
I had a few occasional blue screens on the VM but after removing VMWare integration services and some other unnecessary services/applications it seemed my VM was stable. I finally got to the point where I could replace the legacy NIC with the synthetic Hyper-V NIC. It seems that after that the VM started to blue screen frequently. It is stable in safe mode. I have just reverted to the legacy NIC to verify it is stable.
Notes about the virtual NIC:
- I tried both with SR-IOV and without - bsod with both.
- The hardware NIC is an Intel Gigabit ET Quad Port. I've tried two different ports.
Any help is much appreciated.
