Migrating VM fusion to ESX environment

Hi

I was wondering if anyone had encounter this and able to provide any insight on this issues I have with moving the VM fusion to Esx 5.0 by using the VMWare vCenter Converter Standalone tool.  Following the tool, I chose the destination system type to "VMWare Infrastructure Virtual Machine" then provide the credentials to the ESX environment.  There was a warning under "Advanced Options" saying "Warning:  The destination guest OS cannot be reconfigured.  It may not boot up properly".  I bypass that message and continue with the rest of the steps and clicked finish.  I see in the vCenter that the VM was created than it was deleted immediately.  I'm not sure where the problem lies.  Hope someone can give me a hand on this.  Thanks.

Wendy

e logs might give a clue. Did you specify a change of configuration, if you did, try conversion again with no configuration change.

No, I did not specify a change of configuration as it never ask this during step-by-step.

Have you tried the conversion again, because at the end of the log, it complains of network issues.

So I was able to get the VM onto the esx host.  Now I can only run the Ubuntu on a recovery mode but not on the regular mode as it gives me blank screen.  Any idea what the issue might be?

I installed it manually in the recovery mode but still indicates on the VM itself that it has not been installed.
