Converting a Physical machine to a vmware file

2008-03-12 1 min read Virtualization Zachary Loeber

Just an FYI, don’t try to use the vmware converter program to convert a windows 2000 workstation to a virtual machine. It just doesn’t work. It takes hours and when it is done it tries to setup the disk as a scsi device but doesn’ t install the drivers. Even if you install the drivers ahead of time you may get a BSOD on boot about an inaccessible boot device. Instead use VisionCore’s vConverter. It worked great the first time for me (and then a second!).
