After a p2v operation some clean up tasks should be done.
One step is to remove non-existing hardware devices like “old” network cards (NICs):
- open a command prompt on the virtualized server
- type: set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
- type: devmgmt.msc to open the device manager
- the devicemanager opens – now select “view” – “show hidden devices”
- expand the device tree and navigate to “network adapters”
- select the displayed “ghost devices” and uninstall them
