I am trying to upgrade CUCM 7.1.5 to 8.6.2 and I receiving a window after I reboot the VM. The installation is asking about a recovery disk?


It states my active partition as partition A


then the choices are:


[F]:[f] Check and correct disk file system.

[V]:[v] Verify the disk partitioning layout.

[A]:[a] Align partitions on disk(s)

[Q]:[q] Quit this recovery disk program


I choose V for verify and it just states that I was successful, I choose F to check and correct disk and it states that the check is fine, I choose A and it states that A is an option that is meant to be run for aligning partitions on hard drive(s) that have pre-existing, unaligned  partitions. Any data on the hard drive(s) WILL BE PERMANENTLY LOST!



I am not sure if I should proceed with option A?


It appears to me that I may be running a recovery ISO, could this be correct?
