Converting Physical to Virtual using XenConvert

We have a Windows 2003 server SP2 that we want to do a P2V on. We are using Xenconvert 2.1.1 - we've also tried using the latest version of xenconvert and have the same problem. The Xenserver is running Xenserver 5.6 FP1 and it is up and running on the same subnet. When we run xenconvert on the server that we are trying to convert, it gets as far as initializing virtual disks and then it gives us the following error: Failed to read master boot record on disk. Our source is both partitions on our server we are trying to convert and our destination is Xenserver (IP of the xenserver) Our work area is set to an External USB 3.0 device. Our log output is pasted below. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

What is the source server?  i.e. terminal server, sql server, file server...

Have you tried in safe mode with networking?

Yes, we did try safe mode with networking. It is running Citrix access essentials 2.5 - so technically it is a terminal server I guess you'd say. Besides citrix, it isn't running anything else like sql, exchange, etc.

Usually that error means that something has access and has locked the device (like trying to delete a file that is in use in Windows).

1. Run mountvol from a command shell. It will give you all the volume guid.
2. Find out who's guid is {12431d61-c528-11df-a06e-806e6f6e6963}
3. Now suppose it is volume E: it means the volume E: is in use and cannot be locked. try finding out what could be cause. May be you can use sysinternals process explorer or handle.exe to find handles on the volume.

It would have been more valuable if you mentioned some more Huge apps installed on the server like any AV or something else

We do have AVG Antivirus running on the server. Other than that, the only other thing running on that server is Citrix Access Fundamentals. We've tried in Safe Mode so none of these services were running.

Our E:\ drive is the external hard drive that we are pointing the workspace to. We've also attempted to point the workspace to a local partition and to a network drive.
