    a disk read error occurred

    wildblue Novice


      Converter 4.0.1



      WinXP SP3 Physical -> ESXi 4.0



      After successful conversion (no obvious errors in the logs) I'm getting the "a disk read error occured press ctrl - alt - del"



      Booted from  XP CD and did the fixboot & fixmbr to no avail.  ran chkdsk



      Created new VM and used exisiting vmdk



      checked startup order, tried boot menu



      XP boot floppy DOES work (ntldr, ntdetect, boot.ini on floppy image)  - but this isn't really ideal.



      Any ideas?
