Windows 7 P2V 0xc0000225 and 0x0000007b Error

This was a procedure I found on the web to resolve error 0xc0000225 and 0x0000007b when booting a virtual windows 7 system after performing a p2v

  • Mont the Win7 DVD in VMware Workstation using the removable media options or else change the bios setting in the VM so it will boot from an ISO image.
  • At the first screen (Language Selection), hit Shift-F10 for a command prompt.
  • Run Regedit.
  • Load the system hive from the VM's disk, File > Load Hive
  • Select < c: > \Windows\System32\config\system
  • Regedit will ask for a Key name: Name it something like "asdf"
  • Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\asdf\ControlSet001\Services\intelide
  • Change the data for value "Start" from "3" to "0".
  • For each service listed below under HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet001/Services/ set the "Start" parameter to the corresponding value from the list below

Aliide = 3
Amdide =3
Atapi = 0
Cmdide = 3
iaStorV = 3
intelide = 0
msahci = 3
pciide = 3
viaide = 3

  • Unload the hive, select File > Unload Hive.
  • Exit regedit
  • Reboot your VM.  Disconnect your ISO image if you used one or reset your BIOS boot options if required.
