I have a Windows 2008 R2 server with UEFI . The server has 2 partitions - one system EFI partition and one partition with OS.
Im using SSR 2103 to make an image and tries to restore this to another server with UEFI. Restores with no error , but OS never starts up
Any ideas ?
So what is the blue screen stop code?
Which partition was marked as active during the restore?
Can you confirm the version of the recovery disk (SRD) used for the restore; was it 11.0.0, 11.0.1 or 11.0.2?
had to record the error with my iPad - it goes so fast.
The error code is 0x0000007B
How can I check the version of the SRD disk
In Safe mode the server stops at Bfad_up.sys
First is First , what were the options choosen while restoring ?
It seems to be a driver issue. When you boot in safe mode ,all the drivers start getting loaded one by one.
So you can do 2 things ,
1. Get memory dump file from C:\Windows
2. Get the OEM driver and upload the same.
Also you can perform a clean boot to use the process of elimination with the Services, Startup and General tabs to hopefully isolate the potential causes of the problem. That will give you a great base of operations to fan out from in the troubleshooting process.
Hopefully you can then boot into normal mode
Do you restore to a completely clean hard disk? I had to clean up the disk completely in order to make SSR reinit and repartition the drive before UEFI restore.
If I did not do that SSR showed me a warning and then restored but Windows 8.1 did not boot.
I have tried to restore to a virtual machine and to the physical server. None of the tries works :)
Neither a restore to an older physical server. Must be something special to the installed OS
Hmm , so even the Physical machine needs to be put under Legacy settings and a restore needs to be performed
For now it seems , the source machine is "BIOD" and the destination is a EFI , thus you need to change the EFI machine to legacy mode and perform the restore on a physical machine
To do so , perform the following actions
1. In the BIOS, under Security => System Security - disable Data Execution Prevention and OS management of Embedded Security Device
2. In Boot Options => disable EFI Boot options and prioritize Legacy boot options to boot from CD first
3. Use the multi-language CD to boot
Hope this helps !
