[PVE-User] VMWare to Proxmox migration

Hi all,

I've just migrated a pair or Win2003 and Win2008 servers from vSphere to 
Promox. Migration was succesful and VMs booted Ok with IDE disks.

Then I added an additional virtio disk, just to install virtio driver, 
that was succesful too.

Finally, I delete the additional virtio disk, and change the IDE disk to 
virtio. VMs boot ok, and install virtio driver for the disk. When 
rebooting after this last step, both Windows give me a BSOD. I can boot 
them using last known good configuration, using the virtio disk, but it 
wants to install the virtio driver again.

Does anyone know what could be going wrong? On device administrator the 
disk is showing already as Red Hat virtio SCSI disk, but the driver is 
from Microsoft v5,2,3790.3959 and shows files DRIVERS\crcdisk.sys, 
DRIVERS\disk.sys and drivers\PartMgr.sys

Thanks a lot
