Windows 2012R2 P2v Virtio SCSI

Sometimes making a dump and restore in clonezilla is not enough.

At boot time Windows will load system drivers buy if you have changed your storage windows won’t turn on. In these cases i follow this procedure:

1- Load virtual machine with Windows2012R2 DVD and in recovery go to recovery console

2.- Insert storage controller drivers DVD or CD. and load drivers with this command

drvload D:\vioscsi\2k12R2\amd64\vioscsi.inf

3.- After that you can access to your virtual machine storage, in this case my Windows Install is located at Drive E:\

dism /image:E:\ /add-driver /driver:D:\vioscsi\2k12R2\amd64\vioscsi.inf
