    ESXi image to Hyper-V image

    carbonelle Lurker

      Hi all,

      i am trying to convert my current esxi host to hyper-v as it is becoming redundant ( want to free up resources on esxi for new vm and keep the redundant want running on hyper-v).

      i copied the vm from esxi converted to vhdx but when i tried to run it it didnt boot up.

      its uefi win 2012 server r2. (need to keep it running on hyper-v to build server 2019 on esxi)

      is there any tool i can successfully use to convert vmdk(uefi) to vhdx (uefi)

       

      Thanks

          i copied the vm from esxi converted to vhdx but when i tried to run it it didnt boot up.

          Some details may help. Any warnings, error messages? What exactly happens?

          Just to understand this. Are you trying to run the VMs on a virtualized Windows Hyper-V 2019 that's running on ESXi?

           

          Once you answer the questions, I can/will move this discussion to the appropriate community,

            You would be better asking this question on a Microsoft forum.
