Hello Experts, There is a power outrage regularly in our company. I am worried that the hard shutdown of Hyper-V physical server might corrupt its bootable file or start up files. So I want to take the backup of Hyper-V physical server startup files in case the booting of the server fails. I don't have a floppy drive. In Linux there is an option to make bootable file belongs to that particular server. Are there any options here in Windows Server 2008 r2 also. I know there is an option in bootable windows server 2008 CD to repair the startup file. I don't need that option. I have some Windows Server 2003 also. Please guide. Thanks and Regards.

Software/Hardware used:
windows server 2008 R2 Ent 64 bit oh hyper-v server

Hello,

You can use standard Server bare metal back-up. Just go to back-up and i’m sure you will find the right settings, if you use a hard drive you have to know that the drive is only visible for bare metal restore.

    Here's a simple question for you, don't you have your systems on UPS so that you can do a simple shut-down in the event of a extended power outage?  This would also save you some headaches.
