Some time ago, I received the request to migrate some Windows 2008 Servers to my Oracle VM farm and after complete the P2V migration the newly create VM would not start. It would crash on boot with blue screen and error:
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xXXXXXXXX,0xXXXXXXXX,0x00000000,0x00000000)
This issue is related to the storage drivers needed for the guest VM, and to solve this issue you should do the following on your Windows Server before start the P2V or V2V migration:
- Extract the Atapi.sys, Intelide.sys, Pciide.sys, and Pciidex.sys files from the %SystemRoot%\Driver Cache\I386\Driver.cab file, copy the files to the %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers folder.
- Merge this register file (NOTE: You would need access to My Oracle Support to be able to download it)
- Turn off the virtual machine, and then try import it to OracleVM again.
You can also find more information regarding this problem on the following Microsoft link:
Hope this would help you if having the same issue I had.

1 thought on “Problems when doing a V2V or P2V of a windows server to Oracle VM”
after completing p2v migration , the newly created vm (windows server 2008 r2) shows blue screen with error as
“a problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer”
but it doesnt show any error message.
all files “Atapi.sys, Intelide.sys, Pciide.sys, and Pciidex.sys” are already there in %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers folder
