I need to restore windows vm’s from hyper-v to vcenter vmware . I use this article

The restore complete successfully without errors. But when the server is booting up it direct to something like recover mode. At the end of this article it’s written 

  • For converted Windows VMs, disks might be offline. You can bring the disks online manually.
    How do I Bring disk system online?

Hello @Jean-Paul 

What was the backup type you have selected? Was it a synthetic full with incremental?

What was the OS of the VM?

Could you try to restore it with a genuine full backup and see the results and if it fails to boot, share the restore logs?
