I know there are other posts like that on the site. but none so far relate to this.
I've tried to cold clone a Dell R410 Server with Windows 2008 Server OS installed.
1. Converter is not recognizing the NIC
2. When I Create a new Import, I get tht message that it cannot recognize OS.
I have the latest Converter on the site 4.1.1
What do I do to convert this machine.?
Welcome to the community.
IMHO... use a hot clone and a more recent version of Converter.
You can use Safe Mode with network support (and all critical services stopped).
Simple ignore the first hidden partition.
Is used only for diags and it's not needed in a virtual environment.
as people say here try hot clonning
I just recommend to stop the more important services on your server for example SQL, Oracle, Exchange or similar stuff....
and try the converter 5 version it's beta but I've been working with it the last week without any problem
can you post a screenshot of diskmanagement of the original server ?
is plan B an option ? - that is create a full diskimage with other tools and than import that one ?
Not sure how to do that plan B?
Where is the log file when a Fault happens?
How do I get the errors and actual problem?
PS. Is there a readme on how to do the conversion step-by-step?
(Like select this option and this option and shrink the Drive size to X and then click Next etc...)
Maybe I'm doing something wrong! Which I doubt since I have no warnings before I click Finish and Fault happens!
please post a screenshot of diskmanagement
