I just did a Hyper-V P2V that worked flawlessly!

I did not use Microsoft's SCVMM to migrate as the host is not part of a domain.

I used Macrium reflect to back up a system that was running 32-bit Server 2008 Standard on a Supermicro dual Xeon to a Hyper-V.
Here's what I did:

Used Macrium Reflect to back up the Supermicro.
1. Create the Virtual machine with no network adapter
2. Add a second hard drive to that VM
3. In an existing VM, also add that hard drive. Start the existing VM
4. Format the drive and copy the Macrium backup to it.
5. Stop that VM, start the new VM with the Macrium restore CD.
6. Restore from the drive created in step 4.
7. Start the new VM, disable the network adapter. (I did this as the physical machine contained webs, etc. and need to run during this process)
8. Shut down the VM, add an adapter from Hyper-V
9. Start the new VM.
10. Disable the adapter in the physical machine
11. Enable the adapter in the new VM

Other notes, I had to clear the Arp table in the Cisco ASA as the new IP addresses were the same.
I only one Error in the event log, the parallel port service wouldn't start. I disabled the port in the registry.

Also, I was required to re-activate which was successful.

All of the webs, ftp, etc. are publishing perfectly!
