    VS2005 converting to Hyper-V

    I used the instructions on the link below from Mr Groove. They worked pretty well for me. http://www.groovypost.com/howto/microso ... 8-hyper-v/

    Boot vhd has to be IDE on Hyper-V?

    This week I finished my first Hyper-V server built from scratch. I am using x64 W2K3SP2 with 2 cores and 2MB of Ram on the VS. I am very impressed with the performance over Virtual Server 2005. Even though I had no problems with 2003 server and VS2005, the performance improvement is outstanding. I haven't done anything with VMWare, but heard from a colleague that is pretty stable. David

    Boot vhd has to be IDE on Hyper-V?

    My understanding is that with SCSI emulators in VM the performace is much better. The other detail is that with IDE drives the vhd maximum size is 127GB. Nevertheless I'm thinking that the boot drive can be IDE and the data disks which will be much bigger than 127GB can be SCSI. I've been using SCSI drives since Novell 3.11, NT 4 and so on. Feels weird to go back to an IDE drive although it is virtual. David
  5. Hi, Thanks for your instructions on how to import a VM into Windows 2008 Hyper-V. I am now creating a new VM from scratch and was surprised to learn that the boot vhd has to be an IDE disk. Is this how it works? I was able to create VM under Windows 2003 R2 with bootable SCSI disks. Is there a workaround for this issue? Thanks in advance for any information. David
