P2V of Win7x64 gives Stop 7B in Player 4.0.2 at bootup

Hi,

I've tried to create a VM from a working Win7x64 SP1 installation but it fails to boot with Stop 7B in Player 4.0.2

The log file contains:

Therefore I assume the error is triggered by a missing or wrong driver for CDROM ide1:0

I've tried a Windows 'startup repair' but without success.

The log contains the following I deemed relevant for CDROM related issue diagnosis:

"ide1:0.deviceType = cdrom-raw" is the same type used for a different but working VM I created from scratch on the same hardware.

searches regarding CDROM as root cause revealed http://www.bogus.net/stop_7b_error.html but referred to XP OS version only therefore I was not sure if they would still apply.

Any comments regarding root cause & suggestions on how to get the non-working VM fixed appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

I guess your imported vmdk is connected as IDE0:0 ?
That will not work - attach the vmx-file please

how exactly did you import this VM - with Converter 5 ? - did you order LSI-SAS controller during P2V ?

sorry I should have added the relevant part of VM config

# Settings for physical CDROM drive
ide1:0.present = "TRUE"
ide1:0.autodetect = "FALSE"
ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw"
ide1:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
ide1:0.fileName = "D:"
# First disk, size 200Gb
scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic"
scsi0:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.fileName = "VM_EB8440.vmdk"
scsi0:0.startConnected = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.writeThrough = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.redo = ""

Process to create was:

1) SysInternals Disk2VHD

2) StarWind V2V

3) manual changes of .vmx based on a working VM on same hardware

boot process shows the Win 7 animated logo for several seconds and seems to reach nearly the point when 'start screen' for login would be next

Hope this clarifies the problem.

Thanks

Mike

I would use
scsi0.virtualDev = "lsisas1068"
instead - anyway - looks like all you need to do is adjust  the LSI-driver so that it starts at boot.
Please read my notes http://sanbarrow.com/p2v2008r2.html

it tells you what to do - you could also try to use Converter 5 - configure machine option - but the result should be similar

I used scsi0.virtualDev = "lsisas1068" as suggested but this change made it worse as after power up instantly error 'Unable to allocate a PCI SCSI adapter' gets displayed.

I had read  notes http://sanbarrow.com/p2v2008r2.html before starting the post but felt it did NOT apply.

This seems to be confirmed by the test.

your vmx may have an old entry assigning the scsi-controller to PCI-slot 16.

It should use slot 160 !
If unsure - please attach the completee vmx-file that you have now.

I am 99% sure that the 7b BSOD is not caused by the IDE settings you use

I've done the following:

1) manually changed 'scsi0.pciSlotNumber = 160' (see log part below showing all actually used config values)

2) starte VM and got same error as before " I120: [msg.lsilogic.badPCI] Unable to allocate a PCI SCSI adapter."

3) after power off .vmx contains 'scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "21"' again!

From my view this could potentially indicate a conflicting setting triggering this error. I'll

I've attached the full log and vmx.

I'll use the converter 5 now to see what vmx it will produce.

try the attached vmx-file

your settings were changed for a PCI-slot while the LSI-SAS controller uses a PCIe slot - so it could not work

I've repeated the test and made screenshots of the vmx before I ran player.

0) closed player and renamed all existing .vmx and .log file in the directory

1) downloaded 'edited.vmx' again

2) open in editor and modified annotation = "VM_MHolzer_EB8440 edited" and displayName = "VM_MHolzer_EB8440 edited" and saved as VM_MHolzer_EB8440.edited.vmx (see attached VM_MHolzer_EB8440.edited.vmx.png)

3) right clicked and used 'open with vmware player' to run exactly this file

4) same error 'Too many PCI devices are already configured' (see vmware.log)

5) opened VM_MHolzer_EB8440.edited.vmx and saw again below new entries apprently added by player

uuid.location = "56 4d 36 4f e3 ac 6f e9-ae 36 d4 91 8f 3a 08 e0"
uuid.bios = "56 4d 36 4f e3 ac 6f e9-ae 36 d4 91 8f 3a 08 e0"
replay.supported = "FALSE"
replay.filename = ""
scsi0:0.redo = ""
scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "21"
usb.pciSlotNumber = "16"
ethernet0.pciSlotNumber = "17"
sound.pciSlotNumber = "18"
scsi0.sasWWID = "50 05 05 6f e3 ac 6f e0"

What else can I do to proof that I'm not cheating you and execute the process as described?

ok - I see you are innocent - this is a new behaviour of WS8 / VMplasyer I had not noticed before

use the new attached one

slight improvement, we are back to where it started Smiley Sad

.vmx gets updated with scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "160" as desired but still it ends with identical bsod after windows logo displayed for several seconds.

looks like my case is the 1% not solved by standard approach.

As 'Windows startup repair' can't fix the problem I'm still stuck.

How about reconsidering the CDROM drivers as the root cause?

use the approach with the Windows 7 recovery CD I describe in the link I already gave you

if you dont have one - get one
http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/

The IDE-driver for the CDrom is 99% innocent - feel free to remove the CD-drive for a test

upgrade to Player version 4.0.3 solved my issue finally without going thru the process descibed on http://sanbarrow.com/p2v2008r2.html

Thanks
