NT 4.0 to VM using vmware converter

I am using vmware converter to image a NT4.0 machine.  The capture went good however when I try and load the image I get a farely major stop error.  
Autocheck not found and a 0xc000003a
Issue Info:
I am loading into (GSX) because that is easier but do you think I should skip that and would have better luck on ESX server?
Another potential cause could be that there is software raid on the OS drive!
Auto seems to be an issue and I do not know if that is because of the software raid or something else
Thanks in advance.

I have done P2V conversions of NT4 machines before and seem to recall that the software raid had to be disabled before running converter.

Also, I don't think you'll find a difference between GSX/ESX in this case. (although I hope by GSX you really mean that you are running VMWare Server (which replaced GSX quite a while ago). A machine image made with converter should load just fine into either product.

I'd look more into the possibility to disable the software raid. Also, any NIC adapters or custom hardware drivers you might have had installed on the physical machine may need to be removed and replaced with the VMWare compatible drivers.
