I’ve tried the last night to move my VMWare Machines to Hyper-V get in trouble with my Windows Server 2003 *bahhh*
The main problem was Hyper-V does not recognice SCSI Disks as Bootable, so my Macine was installed on a SCSI Disk.
So if you convert your .vmdk into .vhd container you’ll get a blue screen error while boot the system.
After some searching i’ve found a solutin for this problem, the issue is you dosn’t have a ide driver loaded to the system i’ve fixed this by addind a IDE virtual disk to my machine an run it once again.
Well now there are the instructions:
- Shutdown the VM
- Add a new IDE device to your VM (the size dosn’t matter) and make sure you have select Adapter: IDE0 Device:0 in the settings.
- Start the machine and take a look into the device managment your IDE disk should be there
- Uninstall your VMWare tools
- shutdown the machine
- Download VM Toolkit
- Convert your .vmdk to .vhd disk
Hope this help sombody 🙂
