Lỗi khi converter từ máy chủ Windows 2003 vật lý sang máy ảo VMware Workstation 9

Câu hỏi:

While converting a Server 2003 server to an ESX 5.1 server I received this message after 98% Complete. Error Reconfiguration failed. With a status of: FAILED: Unable to find the system volume, reconfiguration is not possible.

I’m using VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 4.0.1 / or VMware Hypervisor free.

Anyone run into to this problem and find a solution?


Câu trả lời:

You have an unsupported Boot.ini file.

[boot loader]



[Operating Systems]

signature(e6d6ab31)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=”Windows Server 2003, Standard” /fastdetect

Hãy sửa file boot.ini không có hoặc đang có trên ổ cứng C:

If the virtual machine still exists, if you can mount the vmdk file to another virtual machine and modify the ARC Path to being something like:

[boot loader]



[Operating Systems]

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=”Windows Server 2003, Standard” /fastdetect


Then use the ‘reconfigure machine’ option from converter, and it should work.

Otherwise, temporarily modify the source physical version of boot.ini and then convert again.

In this case, the physical machine may have some type of system, hidden, or recovery partition that results in inaccurate BCD configuration data after the conversion and causes the virtual machine reconfiguration process to fail. BCD issues are simply addressed by rebuilding automatically using the bootrec command.

To resolve this issue:

  1. Import the virtual machine to vCenter Server.

  2. Boot the virtual machine from the correct Microsoft Windows installation media (Correct architecture and version of the OS).

  3. Select the appropriate keyboard layout and language options and click Next.

  4. Click Repair your computer.

  5. Select the operating system to be repaired and click Next.

  6. Click the Command Prompt.

  7. Type bcdedit and press Enter.

  8. Under the Windows Boot Manager title with the identifier set to {bootmgr}, you may see that the device is set to boot. Similarly, under the Windows Boot Loader with the identifier set to {default}, you may see that the device and osdevice are set to boot. These items should be set properly for your environment. Usually these appear as partition=C:. In some cases the {default} identifier may have them set to partition=D:.
    Run these commands to correct the configuration:
    Note: bcdedit is located in the following path, c:\windows\system32
    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=C:
    bcdedit /set {default} device partition=C:
    bcdedit /set {default} osdevice partition=C:

  9. Type exit at the command prompt and select Shutdown.

  10. Try to reconfigure using VMware Converter. The reconfigure should now complete successfully. If it fails again, repeat Steps 1 to 7 and then run these commands to set the default device to partition=D::
    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=C:
    bcdedit /set {default} device partition=D:
    bcdedit /set {default} osdevice partition=D:
