I tried pre-installing the VirtIO driver using these steps.
It didn't seem to help. Though of course, I could have done
Through the Windows recovery console, I also tried adjusting the
registry entries for IDE controllers which can cause the BSOD
error message from this page:
After a couple of days in the rabbit hole, I figured I would try
to boot using vbox and the IDE controller, which worked.
I won't be migrating any more VMs from Hyper-V so I don't need to
figure it out. Thankfully all of the other VMs I need to migrate
are running vbox. It is more of a question, if I have to do it in
the future it would be easier if I could create an IDE drive.
If not, the post is here so people know to just boot with vbox
I am also pretty sure if you installed the VirtIO drivers first (if this is possible), you can then migrate the machine. If you can't boot windows to do that, the other alternative is booting VM with Windows ISO attached and VirtIO drivers boot floppy, and in Windows setup there is a way to open the registry of the Windows on the hard disk and tell it to install and load the drivers there.

That seemsto get the right SATA drivers installed. Then I can use KVM to boot itas a SATA disk.thanks,Geoff
