(same reply I left on the other thread, let's continue working on it here)

I cannot reproduce this crash myself, it has to be specific to the hardware.

Can you please tell me details about the hardware setup? (system vendor & model name & precise number; exact CPU; type of storage controllers and disks as well as sizes; amount of RAM; lspci output; dmesg output; ifconfig -a; parted -l; df output; tarball of all /var/log). I've sent you a private mail with an email address you can direct this information to.

(If your question has been resolved please mark the answers as "Helpful" or "Correct".)

Hi

I can confirm that this relates to vCenter Converter Standalone Client 4.0.0 build 146302 and the same Standalone server. The client PC is running XP64, if thats relevant.

Corrected server information:

Dell PE R200:

CPU: Dual Core Xeon 3065 (2.33 GHz, 4Mbytes cache)

RAM: 1 x 1GByte Dimm (667Mhz, not sure on type) MBoard has 4 slots.

Physical Disk: 2 x 160 GB, SATA (configured as RAID 1)

DVD-ROM Drive

Dual 1Gbit NICs (one in use)

All other info you requested I will put in separate private message.
