I want to draw ALL my readers attention to Stu Radridge’s blog and in particular to a particular problem in Windows 2008. Although I hate the phrase this is real heads up…

Basically, Stu has discovered that VM created on ESX4 with “Virtual Hardware 7 presents virtual disks as SAN devices – not as local disks. This resulted in the default SAN policy of W2K8 offlining everything bar the boot volume during installation…”

Stu’s article points to a recent KB article that explains this issue, and the MS KB article that explains how to modify the behaviour should you need too
