I used this string: bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures (or displayallfailures) and it worked.

Use VeeamZIP whenever you need to:

  • Backup a VM on-the-fly (for example, before making changes to it). Instead of running the regular backup job (which typically contains multiple VMs and a specified number of restore points) or creating a new backup job, simply VeeamZIP the VM.
  • Archive a VM (for example, before decommissioning it). VeeamZIP is a powerful weapon in the fight against VM sprawl. You no longer need to keep unused VMs just in case someone comes around later asking for them. Instead, VeeamZIP and then delete unused VMs. It’s a great way to reclaim expensive production storage.
  • Copy a VM (to your test lab, training center, to give to a client, etc.). To install the VM in a new location, simply restore it from the backup using Veeam Backup & Replication or Veeam Backup™ Free Edition (see next section). Unlike copying, cloning or exporting a VM:
    • You can VeeamZIP a VM without pausing or powering it off.
    • VeeamZIP compresses and deduplicates the data to minimize file size.
    • ­VMs are fully encapsulated, and all configuration settings are correctly restored.
    • ­Thin provisioned disks are maintained as thin throughout the backup and restore process.
    • ­You can extract guest files from the backup.

You can use VeeamZIP from the Veeam backup console. You can also install Veeam Backup Free Edition on your workstation and use VeeamZIP there. Running VeeamZIP from your workstation can be useful, for example, if you want to VeeamZIP a VM to a USB stick or local hard drive. Of course, you still need permissions in your virtual infrastructure to perform a backup.
