Hello all,
I am trying to do P2V conversion of W2k3 sp2  in to vCenter server 4.1 as the destination with Cluster of ESX 4.1 Hosts, using VMware converter 4.1 Boot CD option as a Cold cloning by booting the Server with .ISO image. I have gone through all the conversion steps and the conversion process begins and stops @ 2 % as attached in the screenshots. I have tried this P2V conversion nearly 5 times and it stops at the same step. I have looked at most of the articles online to troubleshoot this error and dealt with DNS issues, Defragmentation, chkdsk /f and disabling hibernation and all looks fine.  But it ends up with the above mentioned error. I need this to be acheived asap. I am attaching vmware converter logs here for further troubleshooting.

Please help me in resolving this...

Many thanks in advance
