IDE

Drives are not recognized on certain Nvidia controllers when operating in IDE mode. Switch to Enhanced Mode in BIOS to resolve the issue

MS Virtual PC cannot boot from a .vhd disk larger than 127 GB

Using Acronis True Image, you can transfer a system from IDE to SATA hard disk and vice versa

Issue

VM's boot disk is being changed from SCSI to IDE when I am using the Acronis V2V Easy Converter to migrate VMs from VMware to Hyper-V. I want to maintain SCSI boot disk and ensure that the VMs are converted as Gen 2. How do I do that?

Resolution

The V2V converter will select the generation type based on the ESXi VM firmware type. If the firmware type is "BIOS" it will convert as GEN1, if it is UEFI it will convert as GEN2.
