Vmware - unable to obtain hardware information for the selected machine converter

I'm trying to use vmware standalone converter 5.0 and converted around 20 linux boxes, but when I try these last 2 boxes, I'm getting the following error message, when I try to view the source details.

I would be looking for a Xen to VMware converter. What do you mean that these are production boxes? I you want to migrate them, you need at least some down time.

I just found out that these boxes has raw device mapped and running on XEN virtualization. What is the best way to convert? These are production boxes.
