You may find that the boot sequence fails with the following error:
kernel panic: not syncing - Attempted to kill init!
To resolve this issue, we suggest installing the full version of up.time of Uptime Infrastructure Monitor on your Windows 7 host or any other appropriate target server. Note that this installation process typically takes less than 15 minutes.
