In the console on bootup (after BIOS screen) i see : "A disk read error occured, press ctlaltdelete to restart". The conversion is a success, it creates the VM with no error.
I'm running ESXi 4.0 on a dell PE 2800. Using standalone converter, latest version. The machine I'm trying to convert is windows XP SP2. It has two discs in raid setup - could this be the issue? Is there any special way I need to setup the virtual drives to avoid this?
can you boot the VM into a LiveCD like BartPE or Knoppix ? - maybe the disk is just not bootable but evberything else is fine ...
I can bootup into a live Ubuntu CD. This seems to be something with the XP install because i searched the error on google and it comes up with a number of fixes dealing with booting up from the XP disc and running some chkdsk and fixmbr stuff.
