windows 7 ultimate x64
migrated system from sas to sata and got 0x0000007b

Hello. I try to migrate windows 7 from vmware virtual machine with LSI Logic SAS controller to laptop with ahci.

I did:
1. "c:\Windows\System32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /reboot" on source vm;
2. boot source vm from "acronis backup and restore" from usb stick;
3. copy source disk of vm to the file on the netwotk;
4. boot destination laptop from "acronis backup and restore" from usb stick;
5. restore file from the network to the destination disk of laptop.

trying to boot laptop and got 0x0000007b (0xfffff880009a98e8,0xffffffffc0000034,0x0000000000000000,0x0000000000000000) while loading disk.sys.

I tried:
1. repair by windows 7 installation dvd;
2. some boot repair tools like acronis, paragon, etc.
3. connect c:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM from laptop as hive to regedit while loaded from windows 7 installation dvd; disabled all HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSetXXX\services with substring "SCSI miniport" by setting "Start"=dword:00000003, except amdxata, atapi, msahci like on my desktop pc;
4. acronis universal restore solution while restoring image with "acronis backup and restore".

no results, same issue. please help.

Make it sure that the target partition is active. Partition - Mark as Active

Then run Startup Repair for three separate times, with restarts after every single run.
Startup Repair: Run three separate times.

But this may not work. As the Installation was basically done with SCSI mode, it may still fail/refuse to boot with AHCI mode. And probably you will not be able to have that SCSI adapter for your laptop; at least I dont know.

If marking as active and running three instances of startup repair does not work, it would be better to go for a clean reinstall, IMHO.
