Physical to Virtual – BSOD after Disk2VHD

Peeps,

In this post I’ll be letting you in on the fix for a very annoying issue I’ve been having with a BSOD after creating a VHD of a Server 2008 R2 Terminal Server. The BSOD is all about a Plug and Play driver error with the technical information of STOP: 0x000000CA and that’s it.

Very handy and very helpful Microsoft *thumbs up* but what are we to do about this? Well after some looking on the net and some scrounging, I found the solution that worked for me. It had nothing to do with the fact it was a terminal server, nor that it was Server 2008 R2; it was all about the fact that it had the Hyper-V role installed on it prior to the VHD creation. This apparently causes issues during the install Hyper-V Integration Services when you when you want to get your pesky mouse working – you selfish bastards.

The fix for this is; uninstall the Hyper-V Role from the machine before starting the Disk2VHD process.

Comment below and let me know if this has helped you out!
