Deploy ovf template of very old vm

Hello,

I'm trying to deploy ovf template of very old virtual machine that we have, to try to use it. They are one Win98 and one Windows Server 2003 Enterprise vm that play well on VM Player 5, but now are on an hardware that we have dismiss; I try to deploy it on my vsphere 6.5 but with have for both the same error; sincerely speaking, I supposed that I would have found the error only on w98 vm; what I've done first, because I have as I said the 2 vm on with VMPlayer 5, copied the entire directory of both and converted both with ovftool, so to have one ovf file and one vmdk; then I tried to import them and obtained always the same error:

Issues detected with selected template. Details: - 78:7:VALUE_ILLEGAL: Value ''6'' of Parent element does not refer to a ref of type [SCSI] - got IDE.

I understand that what expected is scsi not ide, but I can overcome this error?

What I have on my ovf file is something this:

        <rasd:Address>0</rasd:Address>

        <rasd:Description>SCSI Controller</rasd:Description>

        <rasd:ElementName>scsiController0</rasd:ElementName>

        <rasd:InstanceID>4</rasd:InstanceID>

        <rasd:ResourceSubType>lsilogic</rasd:ResourceSubType>

        <rasd:ResourceType>6</rasd:ResourceType>

      </Item>

      <Item>

        <rasd:Address>1</rasd:Address>

        <rasd:Description>IDE Controller</rasd:Description>

        <rasd:ElementName>ideController1</rasd:ElementName>

        <rasd:InstanceID>5</rasd:InstanceID>

        <rasd:ResourceType>5</rasd:ResourceType>

      </Item>

      <Item>

        <rasd:Address>0</rasd:Address>

        <rasd:Description>IDE Controller</rasd:Description>

        <rasd:ElementName>ideController0</rasd:ElementName>

        <rasd:InstanceID>6</rasd:InstanceID>

        <rasd:ResourceType>5</rasd:ResourceType>

      </Item>

      <Item>

        <rasd:AddressOnParent>0</rasd:AddressOnParent>

        <rasd:ElementName>disk0</rasd:ElementName>

        <rasd:HostResource>ovf:/disk/vmdisk1</rasd:HostResource>

        <rasd:InstanceID>7</rasd:InstanceID>

        <rasd:Parent>6</rasd:Parent>

        <rasd:ResourceType>17</rasd:ResourceType>

      </Item>

Line 78 of the error is 23 in the above lines of code.

Any suggestion?
