Do your VM have a virtual disk?

Maybe have a look in the BIOS for the boot order.

Please, check if the OS disk is configured on the controller (SCSI 0:0)?

Does the physical server use ide or scsi?

Looks like Converter included the Dell recovery partition.
Boot the VM with a LiveCD of your choice and check if the Windows boot partition is present and if the boot-flag is set correctly.

Do you need support with a recovery problem ? - send a message via skype "sanbarrow"
