I’m having problem in migrating offline VM from my ESXi 4.0 which is run on my Dell Server with Xeon 54xx series into Pentium 4 and Core 2 Duo Desktop running ESXi 4.0 u1 the error message is like the attached screenshot.
This is very strange as I was able to create new 64 bit VM from scratch in those “desktop” ESXi but when I migrate offline VM of the same OS it failed ?
For 32 bit VM this is not the problem, can anyone explains what may cause this problem ?
Note: I’ve enabled EM64T in the BIOS on certain Pentium D processor and Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU but it is still failed.
The Offline x64 Windows VM is from the Dell 2950-III series (host-host since I've got no clustering service) which has got Intel Xeon 5 4xx series processor and I'd like to migrate our webserver and Terminal Service Gateway (WS2008) due to the hardware failure but it failed, I tried to move it into the following CPU:
Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.0 GHz (I tried to create and host 64 bit VM and it works from scratch).
Intel Pentium D 2.8 GHz
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3 GHz
all is failed with the same error message 😐
sadly, eventhough I've restored the VM using Veeam and go to the CPUID mask for the VM Advanced Options and change the 0×800000001 register edx to
–1- —- —- —- —- —- —- —-
By default it’s set to:
—- —- —1 —- —- —- —- —-
it is still failed when the VM is turned ON, see the attached picture
