Unable to detect disk or volumes on the source machine (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS)

I'm trying to move a virtual machine from proxmox to ESXi.

The VM I'm trying to move with Converter is an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, but the Converter gives me the following message "Unable to detect disks or volumes on the source machine. Make sure that the source is a supported Linux distribution".

Does anyone knows how I can solve this? (It would also make me happy if anyone knows how I can convert .raw images to a vmware vm).

You are trying to convert it as a powered-on source on the first step in the wizard in Converter GUI, aren't you? Can you provide some log files for investigation. Keep in mind that Converter does not support software RAID volumes on the souce.

You can find the coverter log files in the attachment.

The machine in question doesn't use a software raid.

Unfortunately there are no worker logs in the log bundle. They are the ones that contain the most useful information. There was some error with generating worker log bundle:

2013-08-29T16:08:35.957+02:00 [09704 warning 'Default'] [diagnosticManager,487] CRC mismatch in worker source related logs. Worker logs will not be added to server log bundle.

Can you provide worker logs manually? They should be under %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\logs (or under ProgramData on Vista and above).
