Have you tried to power on the virtual machine? Did you get a blue screen?

During the conversion, did you select the utility or diagnostic partition? You cannot select this during the conversion.

If you did select the utility or diagnostic partition, try the conversion again and this time do not select it.

If you did not select it, please attach a screen shot of the blue screen as well as the boot.ini file from the virtual machine.

I have the same problem, w2k sp4 to ESX 3.0.2. If anyone knows how to fix this I would be very grateful.
