many unknown devices in a VM

2023-03-09T15:49:59.6433333+00:00

Server Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard with HyperV.

I virtualized a Windows Server 2012 R2 with Disk2vhd from Sysinternals, created the generation 1 virtual machine and booted but there are many unknown devices.

I installed integration services and did Windows updates but nothing changed.

What can it be?

Thank you

    Most likely remnants left over from the conversion. You may be able to remove them but the much cleaner / safer method is to stand up a new one from clean install media, patch fully, migrate roles over and move on.

    If I remove them then they come back.

    The network card does not work, I had to install the legacy network card.

    The mouse doesn't work, I get the message:
    "Mouse not captured in Remote Desktop session.
    The mouse is available in a Remote Desktop session when integration services are installed in the guest operating system."

    These are all the reasons why a P2V should be an absolute last resort. A better option may be to stand up a new one from clean install media, patch fully, migrate roles over and move on. 2008 and newer operating systems have integration services built-in, no need to install.
