After converting the physical to Virtual machine, some devices can't be identified on the VM. Does anyone have this experience and is it possible to identify and fix it ? The unidentified hardware include Base System Device, communication port, etc...

Have you installed vmware tools? normally this takes care of this problem. I would also try to update the drivers on the hardware.

Rt-Click the VM > Guest > Install/Upgrade VMware Tools to install needed drivers

Power down the VM and Rt-click > Upgrade Virtual Hardware (if needed; you may not see the option)

Also, if you had a static-assigned IP, you may need to re-add it in the Network settings.
