Couple days ago I imported one of my VMs into ESX server. This VM was created with VMWare Workstation and itworked fine before. After VMWare Converter was finished I boot up the machine. The boot process failed and stopped with the message below:
Oeps my NTLDR boot record was missing or something went wrong during the import. Therefore I mounted the Windows Server 2008 DVD and boot from it.
Click “Repair your computer”
Make sure “System Recovery Options” finds a Operating System and click Next.
Systems recovery tool is started and click “Command Prompt”
Since Windows 2008 or even with Windows Vista (not sure 🙁 ) the Windows Setup includes some new tools. We are going use the bootrec.exe.
Execute the following commands:
- bootrec.exe /FixMbr
- bootrec.exe /FixBoot
- bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd
Close “Command Prompt” and click Restart
Windows Server 2008 boot now and I was able to log in now. Changed the network settings and I reboot with success now.
