To me it looks like that either the restore process didn't properly restore the boot sector, settings like BIOS vs. EFI boot, or the nvram file.

I don‘t know Commvault. If Commvault has a Instant Recovery Festure try it for this VM to verify it is able to boot. As @a_p_ mentioned the boot records for the OS disk were not recovered correctly.

Did you restore the hole vm or only a selected disk?
