Flushing hidden devices after a P2V

October 16th, 2011 No comments

After a P2V, several hidden drivers etc are left latent on your VM.

to flush these, do the following:

Open a command prompt on the Windows VM (Start –> Run –> cmd).
set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
devmgmt.msc
In the device management console (View –> Show Hidden Devices).

Uninstall the devices that are no longer required. Such as old network devices.
