Problems when doing a V2V or P2V of a windows server to Oracle VM

Some time ago, I received the request to migrate some Windows 2008 Servers to my Oracle VM farm and after complete the P2V migration the newly create VM would not start. It would crash on boot with blue screen and error:
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xXXXXXXXX,0xXXXXXXXX,0x00000000,0x00000000)

This issue is related to the storage drivers needed for the guest VM, and to solve this issue you should do the following on your Windows Server before start the P2V or V2V migration:

  1. Extract the Atapi.sys, Intelide.sys, Pciide.sys, and Pciidex.sys files from the %SystemRoot%\Driver Cache\I386\ file, copy the files to the %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers folder.
  2. Merge this register file (NOTE: You would need access to My Oracle Support to be able to download it)
  3. Turn off the virtual machine, and then try import it to OracleVM again.

You can also find more information regarding this problem on the following Microsoft link:

Hope this would help you if having the same issue I had.
