P2V Standalone Converter v4.0 Second drive not detected.

Greetings,

We are having an issue with converting one our windows 2003 sp2 servers. We are running ESXI 4.0 VSphere 4.0. The converter is only picking up the system drive on the source server. There is an addtional local drive that the converter does not pick up. We have tried running the converter remotely and locally on the source server. Ran Chkdsk on the drive in questions and rebooted the server. Ran the Converter again, and still doesn't pick up the drive. It's a basic NTFS drive.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Is the second/data drive configured as Dynamic disk, and do you receive any errors or the drive is not reported in the wizard.
