Converted VM is a in boot loop - BSoD

Postby stanj » Wed Oct 07, 2020 6:54 pm

I coveted a Windows 2008 R2 VHDX file to a VMDK to run on vSphere 6.7

When i added the converted VMDK to the VM and boot the VM, i see what looks like a BSoD flash by and then the VM tried to boot again and then repeats the same sequence.

Is there a step i missed or some setting that needs to be changed?

thanks

Greetings,

Please consider running disk conversion alone in the Repair Mode.

I am trying a new conversion of the file targeting the ESXi host with repair option.

can you clarify - "Please consider running disk conversion alone in the Repair Mode."

thanks

Stan

While converting the disk to VHDX/VHD you can select to run the conversion in Repair Mode which should make conversion easier.
Please consider it to be a backup plan.

H,

I did select "Repair Mode" when i selected the file.

The VHD is converted to VMDK file and stored on a drive of a Windows 2016 VM i have StarWind converter installed on.

I then copy the VMDK over to a VM folder.
I then edit settings of the VM, select "Add Existing Disk".
I navigate to the VM folder and add the converted disk.

When it boots, it goes into a booting loop.

Did you try converting an entire VM?
Could you provide me with the logs from C:\Program Files\StarWind Software\StarWind V2V Converter\logs?
Can I have the VM properties?
Try changing boot type to BIOS please.
