Didn't work out. :-(

My source machine has a raid1 dynamic disk configuration, and 
appearently grub cannot boot (it does not detect) the an installation of 
windows on dynamic disks / raid1.

So, anyone here with more ideas?

To recap, I would like to virtualise a windows 2008 enterprise x64 
server, uefi boot, configured with a windows software RAID1 on "dynamic 
disks".

What I have tried so far:

- clone/restore using clonezilla, but the system doesn't boot

- restore using the windows installer bare metal restore functionality, 
but the windows 2008 x64 iso doesn't boot under proxmox/uefi

-tried the bare metal restore using windows 2012, but it cannot restore 
a backup created with windows2008

- make the clonezilla-restored copy boot using grub, but grub cannot 
access dynamic disks. (it doesn't detect the windows installation)

Anyone with some smart ideas?

MJ
