Windows deliberately frustrates this use case by profiling its hardware at installation time and at every boot thereafter. If the hardware changes too much, then Windows demands a new license fee. Moving from physical hardware to a VM would probably trip every one of its alarms. For this reason, I would recommend using a separate instance for your VM. However, if you do use a shared instance, then make sure that your PC is booting in UEFI mode. BHyve can only boot Windows in that mode. If you do that, then BHyve will probably be able to boot it just fine. -Alan _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
