Steps to restore Win 10 Veeam backed up OS directly as Hyper-V virtual machine

Is there any way of directly restoring a Windows 10 OS that has been backed up with the free version of Veeam as a virtual OS within Microsoft Hyper-V?

I need to examine some operating systems and would like to mount these Veeam backed up Windows 10 operating systems within Windows Hyper-V.

How can this be done?

Yes, you do it exactly as my article....

HOW TO: Perform a Physical to Virtual (P2V) Conversion the easy way from a computer backup (image).

Article was written with 1.5, but the same process with 2.0 of Windows Agent!

The trick is to create the Recovery Media from the virtual machine! so it has all the drivers needed to complete a bare metal restore!

Andrew,

Thanks this is really good information.

Do you have any other information regarding setting up, using, & supporting Veeam?

The article should cover you for all you need to know, to restore to bare metal!

It's also Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.0, it's fairly simple.

Hi Knowledgeable,

it is not necessary to make recovery media if you want to restore system from Windows Agent backup to MS Hyper-V or Vmware. Depending how your backup via agent is configured (to Veeam B&R repository) you have several options:
- Instant recovery to Hyper-V VM

- disk export and attach to new VM

Dariusz Tyka,

Is the free version of Veeam able to do these things?

Free version of Veeam Agent for Windows or free version of Veeam Backup & Replication? Free version of Agent is supported.

You will need paid licenses for Veeam Backup and Replication!

You do not get the bells and whistles for FREE!
