link Windows VM Won't Boot After V2V Conversion← Back

You have performed a V2V of a Windows VM between Hyper-V and VMWare and after conversion the VM won't boot. All you see is a black screen with a flashing cursor.

I had this issue with Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 2012 servers after conversion. The solution is to boot off an installation CD and enter the recovery console. Once you're at the command prompt run the following commands then reboot:

bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot

If you still can't boot after that, enter the recovery console again and run the following command then reboot:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

You're VM should now boot into Windows.
