Hello,

I've converted one of my servers to a VHDX using "Disk2VHD", a utility by Sysinternals

The conversion is a success, I create the VM in Hyper-V, attach the converted HDD and start it up.  

I get the error "Boot Filed" EFI SCSI Device.....

Need some direction, obviously not heavilly experienced with Hyper-V

Thanks so much.

The supported method of converting a physical server to Hyper-V is to use Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter, Disk2VHD is the legacy method. As for the error message, when you created the VM, which Generation did you select Generation 1 or Generation 2?

Did you select Generation 1?

Try creating a Generation 1 VM, to support your Disk2VHD image.

Please see my EE Articles, step by step tutorials with screenshots to assist you.
