Let me explain my scenario.
I have a physical server (Supermicro 6015v-M3) with raid controller set to raid 1 and two disks, with Windows 2012 installed. One of the two drives is faulty.
What I am trying to do is convert the physical server to a virtual machine and run the vm on a different server running Windows 2012 R2 standard with Hyper-V
I thought the simplest solution was to use disk2vhd to create the vhd image, but I tried few times and everytime it stop when it reach 100%, and hang; I waited 10 hours before to kill the process.
Looking on forums I found people getting same result from disk2vhd when trying to use it with a hd with corrupted files; so I suspect the faulty drive has something to do with disk2vhd behavior, even if in my case there is no corrupt files... The other RAID disk is healthy (so far).
Now I am trying to find alternative ways to create a Hyper-V VM from that physical server, but so far I found reference to only two ways: 1) disk2vhd, which is currently not working for me, or 2) Windows System Center, which I don't have because I have Windows 2012 R2 standard licenses only.
Is there anything else I can try?
