Forum FAQ: You cannot allocate page file to Microsoft SCSI Virtual Disk and boot from a Microsoft SCSI Virtual Disk in a guest.

    Allgemeine Diskussion

  • Symptom

    A Hyper-V guest could not boot from Microsoft SCSI Virtual Disk; in addition, you cannot allocate page file to a Microsoft SCSI Virtual disk.



    The SCSI controller is synthetic only and it would not be loaded yet when trying to create page file. It’s the same reason you can’t boot from SCSI.


    In a Hyper-V guest, you can have 3 IDE disk plus the CD/DVD. Instead of SCSI virtual disk, you can use IDE virtual disk. You don’t lose any performance. IDE is just as fast as SCSI.
