We are trying to load a ghost image into Virtual PC but once the image loading has finished and rebooted, during the sysprep process there is a brief BSOD then the virtual machine reboots.

The ghost image was created on the same hardware, as the machine which is hosting virtual pc.

Is this possible ?

Hey pjohnson

Did you sysprep that image ?

Try that and see if it works

Yes, image was already sysprep'ed.

We built the image, sysprep'ed on a real machine, and trying to test if it works in a virtual machine.

Looks like it does work under VM. Oh well. ..[:@]

Probably, need to rebuild the image under VM and sysprep it under VM too. [8|]

Hmm weird.
I have to say that i havent had any problems with an image made on totally different hardware. My image like yours was syspreped.

I currently have our xp corporate image and our legacy 2000 image,
Loaded and saved as vitual pcs.

Have u trialed your image on real hardware... maybe ur sysprep went haywire.
Also have you only syspreped this image once in its lifecycle?

I ran into a simular problem and it proved to be difficult to solve until I ran across this article http://www.vmware.com/support/reference/win/acpihal_w2k.html.
It turns out that it is caused by using Windows 2000 on a computer with ACPI features aren't set correctly. The article does a pretty good job in explaining the problem and their suggested repair action - fixed my problem. The only hang up to the process is that my W2k images now have 2 options when booting up - one for normal install and one for Virtual machine install. But it works !

Hope this helps
