Hello, I have a problem with my server, but I still managed to save my vm, here is the structure of the vm that I managed to save.
but I have a problem, when I import the .vmdk on vmware workstation, the .vmdk doesn't work, there's only a warning "1234F".
second problem, I can't extract ...-flat.vmdk, the storage file is very important. I have tried various ways to recover ...-flat.vmdk but to no avail. Is there a way to restore the files that are in ...-flat.vmdk?
I'm sorry, because this is the first time facing this problem, I hope you guys here can help me. thank you guys.
Looks lie an issue with the boot sections.
What happens when you select one of the numbers 1, 2, 3 or 4 (which are partitions on the disk)?
"F" may not help, as it points to a floppy disk drive.
What Linux distro are you trying to use to rescue the VM? Is it possible that kernel doesn't have btrfs support?
Otherwise, your secondary virtual disk has some severe problems, and you need to treat it as a corrupted physical disk. For example to start, have you checked the partition table of the secondary virtual disk to make sure it's OK?
Before doing anything, make a copy of the original virtual machine unless you chose to copy the original virtual disk into your new recovery VM.
Also, make sure you have the right partition you're trying to mount. For example, on a GPT partitioned disk configured for EFI boot, partition 1 is typically the EFI system partition, not a btrfs Linux file system. You can double check that using 'fdisk -l" on the secondary disk (/dev/sdb in your case).
thanks for responding, Technogeezer. The partition I found is only one, btrfs only. I don't know why there is only 1 partition here.
...-flat.vmdk here is an open media vault (as a NAS) operating system.
