Hyper-v and bare metal restore of server 2008 with Microsoft Raid 5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have to solve a Problem in a Server 2008 R2 active Directory and Network Environment. I have only a bare metal backup of this Server. I would like to restore the Server in a hyper-v Environment to test the Servers with some Clients (win 7 + xp).

    If I restore this backup (AMD Opteron) to a real machine (Intel 4770) , no Problems.

    The Windows 2008 R2 is a DC + fileserver and has other roles too. it includes the disks
    c: (System) +
    e:(data). e: ist a Microsoft raid 5 Array with 4 disks.

    I use a Hyper-v 2012 server:
    The restore in the virtual machine is running without Errors;
    sometimes the System disk isn't on IDE Controller: Change it to IDE; all other disks are scsi;
    after reboot i got the ...7b bluescreen; edit registry intelside: start =0 instead of 3; System is booting. ...
    after a while i get an  ...f bluescreen, means that direcory Service is not found (AD is on disk e:)

    Seems that the raid 5 disks are not seen as one volume from hyper-v / restored server

    if i look with diskpart list disk:
    disk 0 online               (System)
    disk 1 foreign ....dyn   (raid)
    disk 2 foreign ....dyn   (raid)
    disk 3 foreign ....dyn   (raid)
    disk 4 foreign ....dyn   (raid)

    Could it be that hyper-v has problems with the microsoft raid 5 Array?

    any ideas what could be the problem?

    thanks
