VHD to VMDK with Linux LVM fails

Postby oweh » Wed May 25, 2011 4:08 pm

I’ve been trying V2V Image Converter to convert a Linux (CentOS) from a VHD to VMDK.

It seems to be an issue with the LVM in the OS, the boot volume is correct converted but the LVM is not correct converted. It’s not recognized by CentOS so it wont boot.

It should not boot if you did not patch emulated hardware being different on Hyper-V and ESX.

I'm not sure I understand what you meen with "did not patch emulated hardware"

Is there anyting I can do before or after the conversion?

Yes, you need to revert your OS to default hardware. There's a way to make Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 to re-query hardware. Don't know how it should be done on your Linux box.
