When moving a physical machine into a VM, you’ll likely have to add the RIGHT SCSI interface, if you are using SCSI in the VM (it works better than IDE).
I did the copy by installing a minimal debian system into my new VM, and then doing a dump/restore copy of my physical system.
(The system in question is a firewall. No loadable modules. Static kernel only)
I had a hell of of a time getting the right SCSI interface, however.
It’s not an item under “Device-Drivers” SCSI. It’s the Fusion MPT Device Support!
