Looking for driver PCI\VEN_8086&dev_2829&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_02

I'm trying to restore a Window 7 Virtual Machine (VirtualBox) from backup. In the process, it asked for a driver, PCI\VEN_8086&dev_2829&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_02. I've looked all over the Internet for this drive. Most site advertising as having it are fake and want to download some driver scanner to. Another wants you to log into facebook before downloading, etc.

Any idea where I can find this driver?

VirtualBox drivers are included with the VirtualBox Extensions and then adding the Guest additions within the VM. So make sure you have installed the current extensions in VirtuaBox, and after that install the Guest Additions in your VM.

It's the Intel standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller driver - you shouldn't need to add it to the mix from Additions, Windows 7 should load it natively - have you got a different HDD storage setup configured on your new vbox?

If you want to force install or simply want a link to the download it's included with the RST package here:

Oracle VB Extensions are added. Yes, that driver is installed with the guest additions. See image below. However, I am doing a restore and guest additions need to be installed in a running VM. I can't install guest additions if the VM will not boot.

I've already created VMs from scratch using Windows 7 installation disk w/o problem. I don't know why this driver is not being found. Perhaps an Acronis issue. Maybe it's not possible to restore from the backup of a real computer to a virtual computer. I did go to that website you referenced and downloaded the f6flpy-x64.zip file; unzipped it into a folder accessible by the Acronis Universal Restore, then tried again. Nope. Still gives the driver error:Cannot find driverOther ideas? I may have to try a different backup program.

Then set the restored GUEST to use IDE drivers in the Settings. After that install the Guest additions, and then change the settings back to SATA. Besides, if you are restoring a VirtualBox backup back to VirtualBox, you don't need to use universal restore, as you are basically restoring back to the original Virtual Hardware.

I did set the GUEST to IDE and tried booting. BSoD! See image. I ran through the 'repair' 3 times, but still no joy. I just tried booting normally, not with Universal Restore. Perhaps using Universal Restore with the IDE driver set might work? Thoughts? Will not be able to try that for a day or two.

I am restoring from Physical to VM, not VM to VM.

That is something totally different from what you are asking in your Question. You are doing a migration from Physical to a VM. On the VBox site there are some instructions on how you can do that (the instructions are for XP, but they should also work for Windows 7):

What are the storage settings on the VBox you are trying to restore your Acronis Universal image to?

See also multiple instances of Universal Restore choking over AHCI drivers on their support pages.

MASQ: Image shows current Guest storage: IDE / PIIX4 (whatever that is). See image. This was set per rindi's suggestion. Before that it was set to SATA / AHCI.

rindi: Sorry for the confusion on VM/Physical. I will try the suggestions in that link.

rindi: UNBELIEVABLE!!! That link (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Migrate_Windows) did the trick. That link said, in part:
For reasons we don't understand, Windows memorizes which IDE/ATA controller it was installed on and fails to boot in case the controller changes. This is very annoying because you will run into this problem with basically all migrated images. The solution here is to perform several modifications to the Windows registry.
In fact, it linked in turn to a Windows 7 specific page,  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/922976, which has the following instructions:
Locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV

In the pane on the right side, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.

Open in new window

I was a bit stymied at first because it said, "Locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys". I had both. What does this mean? "Take you pick, either will work"? Did they mean "each" instead of "one"? Well, I changed BOTH keys to 0.

I then did a new Acronis backup and restored it to my Guest VM. It worked right away! I'm going to post this on the Acronis and VirtualBox sites so the solution is out there.
