The P2V wizard also displays the following error message:
No compatible drivers were identified for the device: HP Network Teaming Virtual Miniport Driver. The offline physical-to-virtual conversion requires a driver for this device.
Device Type: network adapter
Device Description: HP Network Teaming Virtual Miniport Driver
Device Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard Company
Hardware IDs (listed in order of preference):cq_cpqteammp
Compatible IDs (listed in order of preference):None
Create a new folder under C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\Virtual Machine Manager\Driver Import on the Virtual Machine Manager management server and then copy the necessary 32-bit Windows Vista driver package files for this device to the new folder. The driver package files include the driver (.sys) and installation (.inf and .cat) files. Check the device manufacturer's website for the necessary drivers.
The offline P2V migration fails as there is no driver available for the physical network adapter, which in this case is the “HP NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapter”.
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to patch the WinPE image. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the image incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you create and keep a backup of the original image before proceeding with the script.
#Original WinPE image (‘amd64’ or ‘x86’)
$WinPE = ‘C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\winpe.wim’
$TempPath = ‘C:\Temp\WinPE\’
#Driver for physical network adapter
$DriverPath = ‘C:\Temp\WinPE\NC373i\bxvbd.inf’
copy $WinPE $TempPath
$WinPEimage = $TempPath + ‘winpe.wim’
$WinPEimageTemp = $WinPEimage + ‘.tmp’
$MountDir = ‘C:\Temp\WinPE\Mount’
copy $WinPEimage $WinPEimageTemp
dism /mount-wim /wimfile:$WinPEimageTemp /index:1 /mountdir:$MountDir
dism /image:$MountDir /add-driver /driver:$DriverPath
dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:$MountDir /commit
copy $WinPEimageTemp $WinPE
As a VMM P2V always uses a local temporary copy of the WinPE image, make sure to keep a backup of the original image and revert back to the original after finished the P2V migration.
