Hi, I have just done a P to V on SBS2011 and the process as a whole went very well.

I have one issue though.  I have a W drive which its sole purpose is to hold WSUS content.  Some way along P to V the W drive has been marked as a system drive and seemingly BOOT files have been put onto it.

I tried removing the W drive from the hyper v config and the server fails to boot.

Can I simply copy these boot files to the C drive and then remove the W drive in the HyperV config?
