Recently had an old vmware server 2.0 fail on me but we were able to secure the data. I copied the entire folders contents to our Vcenter (os: windows 2003 std). When I begin the converter everything foes fine till the end right before the job submits and I get the following:

'A general System Error occurws: unknown internal error'

And thats all I get. Made sure all of the filee were copied over but Im not sure what I am missing.
