Migrate Mindtouch to Hyper-V

My Mindtouch Core wiki VM was originally running on VMWare server a long time ago. I needed to migrate this to Hyper-V so that I could decommission my use of VMware.

I originally wrote this post more than 2 years ago, but am publishing it now in case someone finds it useful.


Used vmdk2vhd to convert the disk to VHD file.

After transferring and booting, it failed.

Used these instructions to assist in fixing: http://itproctology.blogspot.ca/2009/04/migrating-debian-from-vmware-esx-to.html

mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /root

vi /root/etc /fstab

change sda1 to hda1

vi /root/boot/grub/menu.lst

change sda1 to hda1

Then added a Legacy Network adapter

Then followed these instructions to install Hyper-V integration services
