Description of problem:

After converting Windows 2008 R2 physical machine, VM fails to start with error code: 0x0000007B. The booting was not working even with ide disk. The registry value for intelide was 3. But it was giving same error when this was changed to 0. The VM was able to boot when the following registry values was changed to 0.


Not sure which one worked. However changing the disk to virtio is still giving the same BSOD error even after installing all the drivers within the guest.

On a further look at the output, I've spotted a warning:

  virt-v2v: warning: there are no virtio drivers available for this version 
  of Windows (6.1 x86_64 Server).  virt-v2v looks for drivers in 

  The guest will be configured to use slower emulated devices.

Please install the virtio-win package on the conversion server
and try the whole conversion again.

Comment 10 nijin ashok 2017-01-11 16:42:03 UTC
Issue was not reproducible when the virtio drivers was installed in the conversion server. The same physical machine was imported without any issue with the virtio drivers.

Comment 11 Richard W.M. Jones 2017-02-16 13:37:10 UTC
Closing per comment 10.  If you try this again, please make sure
the customer has the virtio-win drivers.
