I have converted a 2000 server to esx and when i power it on the 2000 server setup runs. If i turn off the cdrom i get a no operating system found. I have done other servers without any issues. What am i doing wrong?
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Server" /fastdetect
It could have been a flaky network, but often that disrupts the entire job altogether. If the clone only took a few minutes (i.e. happened very quickly) changes are something was wrong, got missed, and didn't get transferred into the new VM. Good to see it worked flawlessly the second time.
