      Hi.

      1) I've virtualized (P2V) a physical Windows server 2003 machine by means VMWare Converter.

      Then I've tried to import it and run in VMWare Workstation12 and all works without issue.

      (with exception of this - skippable - error:

      2) Than I've changed hardware compatibilty by means VM > Manage:

      so that the VM will be compatible wirh my ESXi 5.1 server

       

      3) At this pont I've copied all VM's file to the ESXi 5.1 datastore

      4) Then I've tried to start the copied VM on the ESXi 5.1 server but this error (not skippaple) is showed on the screen and I can't start the VM on the ESXi 5.1 server
