Hi, I am trying to convert a server 2019 std VM running on 2019 Hyper-V box Config version 9 to qcow2, which will be running on Acronis Cyber Infrastructure compute. I tried this on an existing VM and imported and booted and got error with automatic windows repair option when trying to boot the qcow2. I decided to rule out possible issues with in use machine and built a fresh 2022 windows server standard and once again converted and attempted to boot and again I get automatic windows repair once again. Is there anything I could do different in convert to avoid error.

Please try shutting down the VM without the reason specified. Please also try running P2V conversion from inside of that VM.

HI, thanks for the reply. I have tried to run P2V inside hyper-v VM and when i get to output, local file is greyed out and as such no option to choose Qcow2, see attachments. Thanks
