Converting P2V Server 2008 to Hyper V 2019 issues

I'm trying to convert a Physical server 2008r2 system to put on a Hyper V on a server 2019. I got them converted using DisktoVHD but it keeps bluescreening when I try to start it. Is there something else I have to do to get it to work? Drivers or something?

    Hi,

    It could be a driver issue. Try booting into safe mode. Open Device Manager and search for hidden devices by clicking "Show hidden devices" checkbox. Remove all greyed out devices. Install integration services.
    You can try using StarWind V2V Converter as an alternative to do a P2V conversion directly to Hyper-V as a VM.
