CentOS on Hyper-V

I have been running Linux CentOS on Windows 2008R2 Hyper-V server, but when I moved the image to Windows 2012R2 Hyper-V the image cannot start.  I belive it is missing some drivers but I don´t know how to fix it.

How did you move the VM and what happens when you attempt to start it? Drivers usually don't cause VMs to fail in that way.

First time I started it I got this message:krass
Next time I selected the older startup startand then my machine starts up.

But how can I make it start from the newer startup/image ?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
And again I ask, how did you move the VM?

I did put it to save state on the old HYPER-V and made a copy/pase (the file was about 12GB)
Cliff GaliherCommented:
Yeah, that wont work. Export and import instead. You'll have better results.
soffcecManagerAuthor Commented:
And how do I export ? I can only find way to import.
Cliff GaliherCommented:
You have to initiate the export from theb2008 R2 server. And you export the VM, not just the VHD.

I have exported it, but I have no luck importing it on the 2012 server.
Cliff GaliherCommented:
....errors are helpful. Your one line answers are very difficult to interpret with accuracy.
soffcecManagerAuthor Commented:
I did export the VM in saved state, maybe that is not allowed ?
You should do a full shutdown then export, not doing it in a saved state.  Did you export it to a VHD or VHDX?  It might not be the best to convert it if not required.

To be honest, I never bother exporting it as it takes too long.  Just shutdown the system, then copy the VHD to the new server.  Configure a new VM and mount the VHD.  You might have to change the IP address again as Linux will see a new MAC unless you clone the MAC on the new Hyper-V setup.
