I copied the OS drive from the Azure environment as I want to work on a copy of the VM locally instead of in the cloud. When I turn on the VM, it fails because it is trying to attach a data disk that I didn't download. The data disk is 1TB so I don't want to download it just to attach it and not use it. How can I fix this copied VM so that it only tries to boot and not look for this second drive? I believe I can remove it by putting int he root password so that I can do some maintenance, but with Azure VMs, the root password isn't set and I don't want to change it just in case something happens on the live VM. Is there another way around it?
I'm getting these errors:
fsck.ext4: Unable to resolve 'UUID=451a8a0d-0c99-4b34-8702-361627fda1a2a' [FAILED]

Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue):
