    Convert HP computer to virtual machine (Windows 7)

    REDXSA Lurker

      Hi everyone,

       

      i'm now trying to convert a physical computer (HP laptop) to a virtual machine (Windows 7).

       

      I've did the conversion with the VMWare converter software. Everything were done.

       

      Now i'm trying to start the computer into the VMWare  Workstation Player 15.5 but it's not working, i get a blue screen (of the death!!) on the Windows startup.

       

      To give you more details : the first startup of the VM, Windows started until the the login screen (i've seen the name of the Windows  session). Keyboard and mouse was not working (nothing was happend when i moved the mouse or type on the "TAB" touch of the keyboard...), and 30 seconds after i've getted the first bluescreen and now when i start the virtual machine Windows crash (blue screen) after 5 secs (i can't see the login screen of Windows)

       

      I've tried the "automatically repair tool" of Windows but the message is "Windows can't repair automatically this computer"

      The last thing about the automatically repair tool, when i've finished i get a prompt from VMWare Workstation player (attached at "RemovablesDevices.png")

       

      I've tried to start the Windows virtual machine in safe mode but i get also a bluescreen. When i'm trying to start the computer in a safe mode i can see that the bluescreen happend when the computer try to load a driver. The last driver that i can see in loading (or loaded) is : \Windowssystem32\drivers\disk.sys

       

      I attach the file log "vmware.log".

       

      When the VM crash in the log:
