AppVol: Capture Machine boots to AppStack VMDK instead of OS

Been running to issues when provisioning Application stacks that the capture machine boots to the the AppStack VMDK instead of the OS VMDK . It is an annoying issue but a very easy fix!

  1. Shutdown the capture machine and take a snapshot.
  2. Edit the settings of the capture machine, change the primary hard drive to SCSI (0:0) under the Virtual Device Node option.
  3. Select the VM options tab > boot options > Force Bios Setup
  4. During the bios setup navigate to boot and ensure the harddrive is first in the boot order.
  5. Restart your capture VM and try to mount the appStack for provisioning.
