I have a 2012 R2 server that I was doing some work on and did a reboot and received the dreaded Windows failed to start message. The virtual is running on 1.21.0
So I proceeded to boot to CD and run diskpart to check the drives and received the message "no disks found". I checked BIOS and all of the drives are showing in BIOS, in the console all the drives are showing with their vmdk files for them. I have tried to research the issue but have not had luck with any of the suggestions. This is my SCCM server and it would be a tragic if we had to rebuild this machine. Any help would be grateful, thank you.
Please check if VM disk is still attached to VM by editing VM in web client.
Additionally check if VM disk is still registered within VM vmx file in ssh sessin and that disk path is valid.
