Have done tons of reading on Spiceworks & outside on P2Vs, SBS, 2008, DC related threads and made lots of notes on all Pathways & Tools & Prep: (Please see Pg 1,2,3) so you know I've done the homework on all ways.
- Currently prefer any Cold/ Offline Clone - As dont have another box, plus its safer/ better for DC to P2V offline.
Regarding BSOD Error:
From my Googling so far, It's due to Driver mismatch between Storage device on P hardware and V hardware.
4. 0xc0000034 – This status code translates to STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND. This is the most common status code and is usually caused by a missing or corrupt driver.
- Dell T410 +
- Dell LSI Logic Controller (Shows as: Dell SAS 6/iR Adapter Controller under Win 2012 R2).
PS: SBS originally boots off LSI RAID 0, and boots even when cloned to normal MoBo attached SATA disk, but the VHD clone of that SATA disk BSODs under HyperV.
- Hyper V 2012 R2 - Gen 1
Done several rounds of CHKDSK, Degfrag and even Defraggler + Freespace Defrag
Likely Fixes/ Solutions - Researched so far?
Figured we could add the REG fixes for AHCI, IDE, ATAPI into it, but does not seem to work.
Saw some posts about LSI / SCSI registry changes - But not sure if thats the way to go.
Your Thoughts/ Suggestions?
Other methods tried:
Also, the SBS Backup & Restore method in 2008, does not show any "Restore to different Hardware" Checkbox - Also, it wont allow me to Restore C-drive backup to a Expandable VHD with higher GB size.
SCVMM Trial, MS MVMC, Disk2VHD, Paragon, Acronis, ShadowCraft - All pretty much failed to fix this with their so called Hardware Independent Recovery & conversion mechanisms.
PS: It is SBS Premium 2008 (not OEM) (before people assume/ question or jump)
Also, we cant move to 2012 R2 as yet as bunch of Custom Apps are there on an App/ Data Server on Win 2008 and its all tightly linked.
(But down the line as the Custom apps are Chosen & replaced, 2012/16 or Zentayal may be on the cards)
