All my VMs are Linux of course but my server would be, too, if I didn't rely on so much Windows software for the pre-existing setup. Microsoft is at least aware of these issues and supposedly will be changing their approach. I think we've heard that before...
Is there a particular reason why you can't migrate that bare metal install to a VM outside of perhaps a lack of convenience?
