VMware to Hyper V - Which VMDK?

Postby schnej » Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:11 pm

I'm using your product for the first time to convert VMware images to Hyper V. The new guest will be running on a new machine. During the conversion process I'm asked to select a source .vmdk file. I'm not sure which .vmdk to choose. My machine has a
bunch of DISK0.VMDK and DISK1.VMDK files as well as a "machine name.vmdk" file. I've tried the "machine name.vmdk" file and that won't even allow me to boot the new machine. When I select the DISK0.VMDK the machine fails during Windows startup with a 0x0000007B error that indicates a problem with the disk. Can you help? Thanks, Jim

I don't think so... We're not V2V migration tool, we only convert the images. To boot different hypervisor you need to patch VM image to match new HAL, emulated hardware and so on.
