converter 3.0 cold clone will not boot

trying to p2v and older compac machine. it is running linux, not that it should matter at this point. help:

I place boot cd in drive and boot machine.

I see the starting with the booting bar on bottom of screen. everything looking good.

gets to end of screen and just stays there. I never get the pretty splash screen or anything else. I don't see any activity on the machine, lights seem to be silent.

I have waited about 15 minutes before I give up and reboot the machine back into production.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

You will have to use the peTool utility to create a boot CD with the correct drivers for your box. You can download the tool in the VM Converter download section.
