Have you tried doing the conversion by booting the machine from a converter CD?

    Hi Matt. Thanks for the response,i have checked the firewall and was successful in converting other machine. Can HDD bad sectors create such problem ?

    How are you trying to convert it (through vCenter, local install, or boot from CD)? And is this the only machine that you have not been able to convert to the same ESX destination host?

    Try checking the detailed log and posting it here. If I remember right for your system it will be on the machine you are trying to convert in the %WINDIR%Tempvmware-temp directory.
