BESR (Backup Exec Server Recovery) - Recover from Physical Server to Hyper-V VM


It takes me few weeks of WebEx and the case was pass from Support team to Sr Advance Team engineer to tell me this:

- The previous system being a EFI based 64 bit machine the 32 bit  bootloader of the SRD is not able to recognize the command bcdedit and bootrec.
- The EFI based systems are not supported.
- That is why on the original system BESR is unable to see the EFI (system reserved partition) and on the restored hyper-V virtual machine the the bcdedit and bootrec is not working.

Below are my discussion with fellow Symantec forum members:

 I will write a full articles on Backup Exec Server Recovery 2010 with Hyper-V on PowerEdge R710 connected to DELLMD1200.
