Re: [virt-tools-list] what does virt-v2v check for in a multiboot os?



Nope, when an application is installed to another drive that needs a
Program Files folder that isn't there, it will create one.

Nearly every VMWare installation of a Windows guest that I have worked
on between two separate enterprises has Windows guests with multiple
disk images.

Rich, I imagine that you can track this via my Red Hat case as well:
Case 00411156.  I'm virtually stuck on my deployments now since I have
other guests with multiple disk images.

Thanks again for your help.
