Have you choose to install the VMware Tools on the VM during the conversion?

The source machine has IDE disk? The VM has SCSI disk?

Yes, I choose to install VMware Tools.

Source machine has IDE disk. VM has IDE disk too.

Don't assign IDE-disks while converting!

It looks like Converter supports IDE for the target but thios seems to be a bluff.

If you want you can still fix this by using a BartPE with the tool DriverInjectionGUI against the VM

Thank you. Reading your posts I make next:

In options of converter I choose SCSI as destination disk.

And after converting I run VM Windows Server 2000 with out problems.
