Conversion Failed at 98% internal error

Hello,

I realise this may seem like an old chestnut, and I feel as if I have read dozens of threads on the subject, but not actually found any solution that worked for me.

I am using vCenter 6.2.0 on Windows 7 32 bit. Having bought a new PC I'd like to have the old one run in a VM on the new PC.

Every time I run the conversion of my C drive it fails at about 98%.

It seems to go bad with the line:

==>Can't access guest SYSTEM registry, error 50  at 2019-01-09T01:30:53.065.

I have deinstalled masses of software, tried with the guest account active and inactive. Disabled UAC, Turned off virus scanner etc etc.  The error stubbornly persists.

Can anyone help me please ?

Thanks.

Did not get what you want to do actually (Having bought a new PC I'd like to have the old one run in a VM on the new PC).

Hello RajeevVCP4, thanks for your reply.

Sorry for being unclear.  I have bought a new PC.  On my old PC I have many old applications that I would like to use without going to the bother of finding many old installation files / keys etc.  So I would like to convert the "old PC" into a VM and run that in the player on the new PC, and then dispose of the old PC hardware.  This should be a simple task, but has proven very problematic.

The conversion of my old PC to a VM keeps breaking off at 98% conversion - an extract from the logs is in my original post.

Thanks for your help.
