    HYPER-V VM convert to Physical machine - any easy way for V2P


    Hi folks

    especially @Kari

    One thing with Virtual Machines created by VMware is that it's usually easy to create a physical machine environment from the guest W10 machine by using the various tools out there (V2P conversion).

    Even taking an image with Macrium and restoring it to a physical machine often works - not always 100% but many more times than fail !! You might have to repair boot a couple of times, install a couple of drivers and also set the VM to use UEFI boot rather than MBR but the process generally works.

    If you don't set the VM BIOS Firmware to use UEFI when initially creating the VM and you try to restore to a UEFI system the thing will fail BTW.

    I tried taking a Macrium image from a W10 PRO X64 VM created with HYPER-V and then after restoring I couldn't boot the restored system -- whatever I did - including creating UEFI partitions etc I'd get message "OOPS something went wrong" at boot.

    Anybody got a way of doing a V2P conversion from a HYPER-V VM. (Windows 10 X-64 Pro is the guest -- not an insider build either).

    Just another note to people who might want to test these scenarios --to avoid losing Windows activation when copying / moving a Windows VM to another host machine -at ist boot with VMware you will see a little dialog box saying "I copied it or I Moved it" before the boot of the VM starts. Choose I MOVED IT not I copied it and activation will be OK. Remember if doing this under the EULA you mustn't run more than 1 copy of the VM at the same time -- 1 machine whether physical or virtual = 1 license.

    This is legal but use it sensibly -- VM's are fine for testing and might want all sorts of different cases - obviously it's ridiculous to pay for say 20 licenses when you just use the VM for a few days or hours at a time.

    Cheers
