VPC 2007 Message: "The hardware standard (Virtual Server 2005) for virtual machine <"test system"> i

Discussion in 'Virtual PC' started by Jeff V. Pulver, Feb 22, 2007.

  1. Dear All:

    When I add a new system and open a VMC file created by Virtual Server 2005
    R2 I receive message, "The hardware standard (Virtual Server 2005) for
    virtual machine <"test system"> is not recognized." The system appears to
    work. Will there be any harm in not defining the system from scratch?

    Also, see a separate post about converting a VHD file.

    Thank you.

    :) Cheers,

    Jeff V. Pulver

    There are differences between the hardware emulated in VS and VPC.
    Notably, VS has a SCSI controller and VPC does not and VPC has a sound
    card and VS does not.

    If you had a SCSI controller enabled on your VS VM, that's the likely
    cause.

  3. This is because in VS you can iSCSI which is not supported by VPC. Hence we
    VPC detects that this image is from VS, we flash the warning message.
    For a normal VM, there should not be any issue.

  4. Dear Mr. Atal:

    Thank you for the explanation of the warning message for a VHD coming from a
    VS 2005 R2 system. Fortunately I do not have any iSCSI.

    :) Cheers,

    Jeff
