    Stand alone Macrium restore need to load drivers - any ideas


    Hi folks

    I have some Windows Virtual machines running under QEMU/KVM - but want to take images -- no problem with running Macriium from WITHIN the windows virtual machines, but on restore it will fail as it needs the win-virtio drivers -.

    I have the drivers so no probs there but is there a way of loading these windows drivers when creating the stand alone boot media

    If the drivers aren't there in the boot up winpe / winre module then Macrium doesn't recognize the Virtual disk to restore the image to.

    Screenshot of my Windows Virtual Machine devices shown later in this post.

    the drivers can be loaded via an ISO image no prob presumably when creating the stand alone boot media

    (There's one unknown hardware device in my list here but it's OK - some tpm security module or whatever -- don't need or use it in a VM) - the other drivers I need are marked).

    I'm sure there is a way of doing this -- I want to use Macrium to backup the VM's --I don't need the entire disk image via using DD in Linux. To repeat --no problem in CREATING the image via macrium -- it's RESTORE from stand alone boot media.

    Problem doesn't arise in VMWare but it's the basically Red Hat paravirtualised i/o drivers that obviously can't be distributed automatically with Macrium.

    BTW these drivers absolutely make these VM's fly --- don't forget the video qxl driver andthe ethernet virtio drivers too so you've got host speed for network between guest and host and FULL LAN speed from VM's to rest of LAN.
