P2V failing

I have a windows 2000 server, SP4 with update rollup 1 version 2, that keeps failing at 97% during the P2V process with Converter Standalone. Can you make sense of the log file and determine what the problem might be?
vmware-converter-agent-14.log

Few issues!
1) Looks like your physical machine has some bad sectors on the hard drive
2) It can't copy some files since they are in use.
It is always a good idea to shutdown all I/O intensive services/applications on the Server when you do the P2V. Ideally the P2V should be done while the physical machine is offline (that is you boot of a vmware converter CD) but since that is not possible if you don't have the enterprise version, make sure things like file services, databases, etc are switched off . Then try again.
Hope this helps!
Run a chkdsk /F and defrag before the P2V.
