    vCenter Converter fails P2V at 98%: Unable to find the system volume, reconfiguration is not possible.

    brownkevin Lurker

      Hi,

       

      I am seeing a failure of a P2V at 98% with vCenter Converter 5.0.0 on a Windows 7 machine.  I have extensively searched the discussion archives and am not able to determine the source of my failure.

       

      The error:

      FAILED: Unable to find the system volume, reconfiguration is not possible.

       

      Error: An error occurred during reconfiguration.

       

      I have tried several suggestions from the archives such as; running as administrator, disabled real-time virus scanning, disabled other processes via msconfig, and am running Converter from the same physical machine I am trying to convert.  The disk has three partitions, a restore/backup, C:, and D: and during the converter wizard I only select the C and D partitions.

       

       

      Here is an excerpt from the converter-gui.log file (full logs attached)
