RE: Disk controller type


That didn’t format correctly

Set this is the user_vm_details table

Id        vm_id   name                         value    display
3625  201        rootDiskController  virtio     1

Ok, I have found were to force the controller type for a VM

Set this is the user_vm_details table

idvm_idnamevaluedisplay
3625201rootDiskControllervirtio1

My issue now is slipstreaming the windows ISO and the operating system

bcdedit /set detecthal Boolean 1 isnt working for me

Thanks

Adam

Andrija,

I have something weird, I have a template which uses the OS type of Windows Server 2016 (64-bit), this was imported into Cloudstack  and this template uses a VirtIO controller I have another template that was created from a disk also with OS type of Windows Server 2016 (64-bit) but has an ID controller.

I am trying to work out why this happened and now I can make the disk template always select the VirtIO controller.
Setting the instance to windows PV causes BSOD on boot, well before hal can be redetected


Thanks

Adam

Sooo... here is my experience:

if using correct VirtIO OS TYPE (set on template/VM) - i.e. ubuntu 14.04, Centos 6.x or 7.x, Windows PV, other PV (but NOT centos 6.0 or 7.0 - these "dot zero" versions are NOT virtio at least in ACS 4.8), then when VM is STARTED FROM ACS (power on VM) - all drives should be attached as VirtIO.

BUT if you do same as above, then additionally create and HOTPLUG new drives/volumes to KVM - it will be IDE - some strange default behavior during hotplug action.... just stop VM/start and it will become VirtIO again...

In order to "troubleshoot" these instances - you need to be careful to which OS TYPE was the instance set to (this is inherited from TEMPLATE, if you used some template - but it CAN be changed on an deployed&&stopped
instance)

In case you plan to i.e. move your Windows instances from IDE to VirtIO - be aware that it might fail miserably, and OS will fail to boot - but there is a fix with *"* bcdedit /set detecthal boolean (where boolean is one of 1,  on, yes or true) " after which Windows will detect HAL again and boot just fine.

Let me know if more help needed

Cheers
