I have a windows server 2008 dell poweredge that converts no problem. The issue is when i start the new vm in ESXi 5.1 it boots ok but when it gets to the login screen in will restart. I cannot get into safe mode either.
I've tried doing this several times, not making changes to the configuration, thin and thick disks, file and block level with same results. I p2v an exact same physical machine with different server roles and it worked with no issue.
