At this moment hard to say where is the problem and what you are missing. 

What Converter version is in use?

Hello,

 

If ORL stands for Oracle Linux, then the issue is the version. Converter currently does not convert RHEL 8 (and Oracle Linux is a clone of RHEL, right?).

However, since this is a Hyper-V VM, you may try V2V, i.e. converting it as a powered off VM.

 

HTH,

Plamen

The issue is the source machine OS version, not Converter's. Converter doesn't work (yet) with RHEL 8.* (or CentOS 8.*, or ORL 8.*, or any other derivative).

That is, if I am not mistaken that ORL stands for Oracle Linux? (it is kind of ungoogleable)
