How do I convert a windows 2005 VM that boots from IDE to ESXi SCSI format?

Can anyone help, I've 2 VM's on 2005 virtual server that I have to get off and onto a new ESXi box, I can covert them just fine but neither will boot due to them being on virtual IDE controllers. How can I convert these to working VM's?

Did you use vCenter Converter Standalone tool? During the Conversion wizard, you should have the option to change the controller to SCSI. Or, you can use VMware's KB on how to change it:
