Hello,

we recently updated our SCVMM manager from 2016 to 2022. Now we want to add new hypervisors by using the bare metal provisioning from the fabric. We have a physical hardware profile with a server 2022 vhd which was syspreped (OOBE + generalized). However the setup of the hypervisor always fails at step 1.2.8 retrieve information about the os being deployed. The following error is displayed in the job:

Error (21117)

The operating system in the specified virtual hard disk does not support native VHD boot.

Recommended Action

Verify that the operting system in the selected virtual hard disk is Windows Server 2008 R2 or later.

In the console of the server we can see the following error:

Error 8099527d

The log is showing CarmineException::CarmineException: CarmineError: 21117, hr: 0x8099527d

In the event log of the hosting vmm server there are also related informational entries to this:

Virtual Machine Manager will not deploy an OS to computer with SMBIOS GUID: MAC: because the GUID does not match any that have pending operating system deployments in VMM. The PXE request is being passed on to the next WDS PXE provider.

We also tried using Windows server 2019 which ends with the same problem. Our old server 2016 image is still working tho. The issue seems to be because of the image we're using. Are there any known problems with this? Are we using the wrong method of provisioning the image? I've seen a video with someone using server 2019 so I think 2022 should also be possible.

Thanks for any help!

    The operating system in the specified virtual hard disk does not support native VHD boot.

    Native boot for Windows 10 or later requires the .vhdx format, not the .vhd format.

    Are you using .vhd format virtual hard disk file?

    Hello

    This error occurs s when non-English WAIK is used. Therefor you've to copy the English bits from the WAIK and update the WinPE image in SCVMM

    The folders should be:

    Source: (C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\Image Manager by default)

    Destination: (C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager\bin by default)

    Hi,

    thanks for your suggestions! Was using a vhdx file on all my previous tries, so that wasn't the problem.

    I was able to fix the issue by building a reference disk by following this (older) blog post that i found:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/de-de/archive/blogs/adiyq/end-to-end-bare-metal-provisioning-with-scvmm-2012-sp1-r2-part-6-building-a-reference-image-with-mdt-2013

    Using the resulting vhdx I was able to provision a physical server from scvmm. Other followup issues could be solved!
