Raphael,

>I convert my Workstation with the Converter ...

Which format did you choose in Step 2? If you chose "other" virtual machine as the output type, you would have needed to pick a workstation type.

If you have converter installed directly on your workstation, could you send it directly to ESXi? This should take care of the entire process for you. ESXi doesn't quite work like the full ESX, and it is better to convert directly to it.
