    a disk read error occurred

      Converter 4.0.1

       

       

      WinXP SP3 Physical -> ESXi 4.0

       

       

      After successful conversion (no obvious errors in the logs) I'm getting the "a disk read error occured press ctrl - alt - del"

       

       

      Booted from  XP CD and did the fixboot & fixmbr to no avail.  ran chkdsk

       

       

      Created new VM and used exisiting vmdk

       

       

      checked startup order, tried boot menu

       

       

      XP boot floppy DOES work (ntldr, ntdetect, boot.ini on floppy image)  - but this isn't really ideal.

       

       

      Any ideas?
