Don't know about earlier Windows versions, but newer server operating systems might indeed have a problem with that (at least if the disks also have the same size). You might have to override it in diskpart or something. The difference is that the drives should both show up, but one is marked as "offline".

How about generating a serial number on the fly from, say, a hash of the creation date of the CHD (if that's stored somewhere?)

But then CHDs created on the same day would have the same serial smile

The drive isn't seen in diskpart or Disk Managment it's flagged in Device Manager under other devices.

True, the timestamp should be at least with 1-second precision. There's still a chance of an equal serial number if two CHDs are created in the exact same second, but that is probably a rather rare case smile

Is the support for CDROM drives working? I have not been able to mount a CD image as either an iso or chd on an emulated IBM.

But after resetting the machine with F3...

I tried resetting with F3, it still says:
CDROM Not High Sierra or ISO-9660 Format
Abort, Retry or Fail
This is before and after resetting.
I am using the ct486 driver.

Your CD image might be invalid then.
