I am working with a machine that had its motherboard die. The machine is running Windows 2000 for legacy software. After the motherboard died I used
disk2vhd to perform a physical to virtual transfer. The drive data seemed to copy over to the
vhd file well. However, whenever i try to boot I get a message saying Inaccessible Boot Device
So far I have tried several things to fix it.
- windows 2000 automated repair
Also, I have attempted to open the registry of the
vhd without any success. There is another fix that i have seen suggested that requires editing the registry. Is it possible to open a
Windows 2000 hive in another OS or another copy of Windows 2000?
One other thing to note is that the error appears in all of Virtual PC 2007, Hyper-V and VMWare Player.
Does anyone know how to get past this?
