    Macrium viBoot - Create Virtual Machine using Macrium Image


    Kari- Thank you for the quick reply.
    Here are the results of my testing this morning...

    Host system is : Win8.1_X64 [Ver6.3.9600]
    Running viBoot from an Administrative account.

    All operations using viBoot interface (not Hyper-V interface)
    Used 'shut down' option from XP VM Start button as you suggested.

    Tried 'Full' and "Differential' backups with identical failure results.


    Annotated viBoot log-

    Information 30/01/2017 15:25:51:0293 Starting virtual machine [WinXP_x86_M52-2].
    Information 30/01/2017 15:25:51:0340 Virtual machine [WinXP_x86_M52-2] state changed from Off to Starting.

    {Used Backup button from viBoot, requesting 'full' backup}

    Information 30/01/2017 15:33:27:0703 Backing up virtual machine [WinXP_x86_M52-2] failed.
    {Used Backup button from viBoot, requesting 'differential' backup}
    Information 30/01/2017 15:33:46:0236 Backing up virtual machine [WinXP_x86_M52-2] failed.

    {same error messages as before}


    I just noticed that the error message refers to the Reflex log; here is what is in the Reflect log-
    Macrium viBoot - Create Virtual Machine using Macrium Image [​IMG] Image ID - 2C2CF2F61F29C0EF Imaging Summary Backup Definition File: c:\users\carloper\appdata\local\temp\vbd9810.tmp XML Validation: Error - '<partition>' is not a valid partition number

    I have tested this several times today, in fact I even re-installed Windows XP today on a VM just to install Macrium Reflect on it, make an image and then use that image in viBoot.

    I have none whatsoever issues in editing WIn XP on viBoot VM, then saving a new differential or full image.

    I will run some more tests, can't promise I can do them today.

    Kari- Thanks again for the help.
    Based on your latest comments, I started over again, Building the VM from scratch but, from the same Reflex full backup.


    This time I made no changes to the WinXP VM image. After a reboot to get the Legacy network adapter installed, shut down from the image 'Start Button' and tried to do a backup without any success (exactly same results as last time).
    I now suspect this is a viBoot problem and not an 'operator' error.


    A bit more information. Looking at the Reflect log error message, I retrieved the referenced (xml) file and have attached.

    Macrium viBoot - Create Virtual Machine using Macrium Image

    I do not think it's a viBoot issue. As I mentioned, I have tested this now several times, existing and new XP installs, existing and new Macrium images. Works every time.

    A few questions:
    • On what host drive do you have the XP image stored when you mount it in viBoot?
    • How much free space you have on that drive?
    • How big is the image file?
    • How big is the Windows XP HDD the image is made from (not the partion C: size in XP, I mean the whole HDD)?
    • In viBoot Options, what path is set for VM Repository?
     
  5. DarHorse Win User
    Kari- Thanks. Per your request..
    A few questions:


    • On what host drive do you have the XP image stored when you mount it in viBoot? [D:\Hyper-V\WinXP_x86_M52-2\3AD13125AB5C90EF-00-00.mrimg]
    • How much free space you have on that drive? [Total capacity: 321GB. Free space: 152GB.]
    • How big is the image file? [20.7 GB]
    • How big is the Windows XP HDD the image is made from (not the partion C: size in XP, I mean the whole HDD)? [298GB of which the WinXP partition is 47GB.]
    • In viBoot Options, what path is set for VM Repository? [Getting this from Hyper-V settings:
    C:\ProgramData\Macrium\viBoot\{060E5B68-EF3F-4938-99BDC41581A5D7F4}
    also
    Physical hard disk: Disk 1 298.09 GB Bus 0 Lun 0 Target 0
    all automatically configured by viBoot when it created the VM.]Regards

    @DarHorse

    I contacted Macrium about this issue of yours, seems that although it works in my tests with Windows XP images, there's something in viBoot that occasionally causes issue like yours with XP images.

    The answer from Macrium in all its simplicity was "We have just become aware of this issue ourselves and we will be releasing a fix ASAP."

    Let's wait a bit and give geeks at Macrium a chance to fix the bug *Smile

    Got email from Macrium today about your issue. The message is short and clear:

    I have been using Hyper-V to run a Linux VM for a while now with no issues and saw this tutorial to mount old backups.

    I am using Macrium free v6.3.1835.

    I installed the viBoot as in the tutorial, mounted a VM from one of my old backups, so seemed to work. This was on 8/13. Just more as curiosity than anything else.

    Today I was in the Hyper-V manager and noticed the VM from viBoot, and decided I was done with it, and just deleted.

    Now I can't uninstall viBoot.


    Macrium viBoot - Create Virtual Machine using Macrium Image [​IMG]


    Thinking I maybe messed it up by deleting from Hyper-V manager, I then checked on my system image backup, to see if I could just restore from my daily 6:00 am backup from before I messed it.

    That is when I see that my daily system image (Macrium) has been failing since the day I installed the viBoot.


    Macrium viBoot - Create Virtual Machine using Macrium Image [​IMG]


    No notification from Macrium Reflect, so word of warning, if you don't go into Macrium daily and check your logs, you will not notice it is failing. But any way, my latest backup is the one just prior to installing the viBoot. so restoring the image to earlier today is not an option now.

    Can anybody give me a suggestion on how to remove viBoot? I am concerned that my system might be unstable now with this extra drive?

    I went in disk manager and saw that it had a disk 9 with a SCSI driver the same size as my C: Drive that wasn't connected properly, so I disable it, but still have the problem.

    EDIT: I solved it finally, what I think finally worked: In the viBoot, it showed the "Deleted VM". I deleted the deleted vm, and then it let me uninstall.

    Shows an invalid path?

    Hmm just wondering if this is an issue with having the external drive in an USB 3 caddy connected to an old laptop that has only USB 2 ports. Will find an older USB 2 enclosure to try.
