[MOPs v.?]Add to VML-WS OK but MOP-VM startproblem 9 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 1
After moving MOP-VM to host where it schould ran and clicking on associated "*.mop"-file the MOP-VM is perfect added to VML-WS.

But when I start the just added MOP-VM, I get the following screen:


And that's it, the MOP-VM das NOT go on starting OS of MOP-VM!

I think the reason for this problem/bug is, that the MOP-OS can not start with driver of MyOldPC-Hardware.

When I run sysprep before catching MOP-VM, the MOP-VM-OS should install necessary hardware-driver, and then it should start after mini-setup.

And the SID of MOP-VM-OS is changed too.


O.K., O.K. I can try to start the MOP-VM in "Safe Mode":


But the result of "Save Mode" is not really better:


That's it ...

admin, what do you think about this, so far ???

Uwe,

Was the conversion successful? the last step of the conversion is critical, it tries to make the virtual disk bootable.

You can do the following using the virtual disk:

(1) run VMLite Wizard, select 2nd option, and specify your virtual disk file generated from MyOldPCs. Make sure you uncheck the "Copy virtual disk" box, so the disk file is not copied.

(2) follow the wizard to create a xpm.

This way, vmlite will try once again to make the disk to be bootable.

I suspect the virtual disk file was not modified at all by MyOldPCs. Can you run a command to see if it can be mounted?

run cmd as Administrator, then cd "C:\program files\vmlite\vmlite workstation"
vmlitectl mount your-diskfile
vmlitectl umount z:

YES, as far as I can judge.

Thank, I can read ..., but what else do you do at this step than setting the first primary partition to ACTIV ???

Sorry, NO, as you (maybe) can see in my last post (have a look to my screenshots), the MOP-VM boots to the first stepps of loading MOP-VM-OS. Belive me.

I've tested it with running sysprep before catching MOP-VM, in one of my numerous tests !!!

See, when it begins to start the VM-OS the *.vmdk-file MUST have bee mounted, or what do you think???

Is it also O.K. to run 4NT.exe as administrator, then:
%ProgramFiles%\vmlite\vmlite workstation\vmlitectl.exe mount my-VHD-file
and than:
%ProgramFiles%\vmlite\vmlite workstation\vmlitectl.exe unmount [driveletter of my before mounted my-VHD-file]

What do you think, may it run, too ???

Thanks,

Uwe

yes, you can mount vmdk, vhd, vdi, or hdd files.

The disk file can be started, it does not mean it can be mounted.

MyOldPCs needs to make many modifications to the generated virtual disk. In order to do this, the disk file must be mounted, and registry settings be modified.

If you use VMLite Wizard again, it will re-try the modifications, and to make the disk file to bootable.
