Physical Drive Missing after CPU replacement and restart from VM

This post was originally published on this site

Hi All,

I have a few VMs that were created on C: (Win10) but use a physical drive as the HD. After replacing my CPU on my machine and restarting, I have 1 VM that is no longer booting up. When I look at the HD setting, it says ‘Using Device’ but does not continue with ‘.PhysicalDriveX’ like the others do. This VM using PhysicalDrive06 and I see it under Disk Management as online (not assigned a Drive Letter in Windows). When I go to the HD settings of the VM, it gives me a generic ‘The system cannot find the file specified’. If I try to create a new VM, I do see PhysicalDrive06 as an option to pick. Any ideas on how I can fix this VM? Attaching VM files and logs. Thanks in advance.
