This one has me stumped. I read the articles on Experts Exchange on how to use Microsoft's disk2vhd software to convert the server to a virtual machine. That's the easy part, but here is where I am having issues.
Physical server has the following hard drive characteristics.
RAID 10 on hd0-hd3. The drive is then split into two volumes. C and D and of course there is the small volume that is the boot volume.
Now, unfortunately if I choose all three volumes they are too big to be the one single VHD (just over 350 gigs) but if I choose C and the boot volume together, and then convert D then the server will boot up but the D drive will be seen as unreadable. When I try and click on it in Explorer it says I need to format the drive. yes, I applied all the Hyper-V drivers by inserting the disk in Hyper-V Actions.
Now I haven't tried to convert the whole thing together because of the size issue and I am assuming that when the disk2vhd runs it will take everything I checked and make it one big VHD correct?
Any help I can get would be much appreciated.
