VMWare P2V vCenter Converter Standalone Problem

I'm using VMWare P2V vCenter Converter Standalone to convert a Server 2003 R2 to the virtual environment.  I've already converted one physical server so I know it works.  This second server hangs at 96%.  I've left it for 24 hours and still no movement.  So I cancel the conversion process and try to start the new VM and get a black screen with a non-blinking cursor.  It won't start.
I need help to get this new VM working or how to get another conversion going and finish at 100%.  ESX Host is ver 5.1

Are you changing ANY of the parameters in the conversion eg installing VMware tools disk sizes partition sizes

Redo conversions with default settings

Yes.  I'm making the Hard Drives smaller.  There is a lot of empty space.  I'll try again without touching any of that.
