VMware vCenter Converter Error: unable to clone volume 'C:'

Another error I received while converting a physical machine onto my ESXi server.  

FAILED: An error occurred during the conversion: 'File-level volume clone error failed with source volume id \WindowsBitmapDriverVolumeId=[06-CF-59-CB-00-00-50-06-00-00-00-00] and target volume id 60?,95;,0000056000000000. Error code:
267'

There are three partitions on this server.  SBS 2011 is the OS.  I read where multiple partitions could cause this issues so I selected only C and got this error at 79%.  

Currently I have 3 partitions as follows ::

System Reserved - 100MB NTFS System, Active, Primary Partition
C - 149.15GB NTFS Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition
D - 781.25GB NTFS Primary

The only thing I haven't tried is converting the image locally and migrating it into ESXi.

I attached the log file for the conversion.

Try to convert the physical server but only convert one disk at a time...

Did that, failed.  I didn't select the System Reserved & C: separately from the D: drive.
