If I use VMware converter it throws
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80040154, Class not registered .
Operation: Instantiating VSS server
If I use Disk2vhd it throws
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error querying for the IVssWriterCallback interface. hr = 0x80070005, Access is denied. . This is often caused by incorrect security settings in either the writer or requestor process.
Operation: Gathering Writer Data
Has anybody been able to pull this off? It seems that the VS copy service is throwing a huge wrench into all of this.
Not exactly and answer:
Yep, I've done a few. But I always do it offline. PXE boot WinPE, mount a network VHD, and robocopy it over. A quick bcdedit touchup to detect the new HAL and it's good to boot (more driver installation, integration services, etc from there).
Perhaps there's an equivalent process for VMware images?
