I have a client's old PC (busted caps and such on motherboard) and I have tried to use Vmware's P2V without success. It gets to 91% and fails - although the PC does not error out when running.
What is the easiest way to convert an OS on a hard drive to a VM WITHOUT running the old PC? Remember that Vmware's P2V is failing when installed and run on the client's PC.
I also tried using Acronis True Image Echo Wrokstation 9.5.8115 to create an image to import usinf Vmware's Workstation 7.0, but Vmware's Workstation said it did not recognize the format of the file (Acronis validation says the file is not corrupt).
