I want to virtualise one of my clients XP PCs (standard HP desktop PC) so I can test it on their disaster recovery site. Every time I run the P2V assistant on an XP machine, the program starts copying the PC image to VMWare files but then crashes out with an error.

I've never had any issues using P2V Assistant on a Windows 2000/2003/SBS 2003 machines.

Has anybody got an idea what's going wrong, or what I need to do?
