You can try if it works, but Windows XP is not on the list of supported platforms (or guest OS's for that matter)

You can try old vmware converter like 5.0 or before. Recently i have this kind of issue with windows 2003 first release.
Finally am managed to convert the machine using 4.3 version. am when your using this please install the convector on the xp machine(don't go for remote export).
Thanks for the replies
Ive downloaded the migration agent version 6, unfortunately V 5 was not available
I may have an old version of the converter somewhere so I'll see if it loads if I can find it!
