Error on Importing VM in Converter (Unable to determine OS)

Hi All,

I "googled" extensively this error but nothing seemed to be similar to my case so I decided to post here.

I have a WORKING Server 2008 R2 64bit VM - it works fine in Fusion and in VMWare Workstation.

I want to Import it into an ESXi host with Converter but I get "Unable To Determine OS" error.

The log entry is not very helpful: "image processing task has failed methodfault exception sysimage fault unabletodetermineguestos"

What may be going on? Any suggestions?

I would really appreciate ANY help Smiley Happy

Thank you,

KK

For Windows 2008 R2 you need VMware Converter 4.3. Did you use this version?
