I have tried to convert 2008 r2 from physical to virtual vmware 5 but can not because converter will not convert fat 32 partitions. I was informed by vmware that their cold clone CD is no longer supported and it is decommissioned so I will be not able to use it. To workaround the converter issue, I deselected all FAT/FAT32 volumes on the View/Edit options page of the Conversion wizard and discovered that the NTFS partition converted but when I started the virtual server vmware said no OS.
Is there a way to convert a fat32 OS partition to ntfs before using vmware converter because I tred to use convert.exe but cannot because Volum(s) OS (c:\mount) use an unsupported file system and cannot be backed up.
