I have tried at least 10x to create a VMMachine from my physical machine.
I currently use VMWorkstation 8. 8.0.0 build 471780 and downloaded the Converter Standalone 5.0.0.
i have tried to use the standalone to convert and i installed it on the same physical machine i want to VM. I go through the process and it seems to create the VM but gives me a configuration error (nothing specific though). I have tried every single combination of settings and nothing works. I am attaching a pic of a highlight of the log.
anyone experience this issue and solved it? My physical machine works at 100% and there is nothing I can't do (boot, safe mode, installs, etc)
You forget to add the OS name which you tried to convert.
And in some case, you can't deny for reboot. No one can give 100% availability on all time.
