Linux CentOS on Vmware to Hyper V

Hi All we adopted a VMWare host that has a Linux CentOS VM on it, we wish to migrate this over to Hyper V, my question is How do I do this.

I have Installed some imaging software to the Linux Machine and created a backup then using the sam software I have converted that backup file to .VHD when I assign the disks and boot I get

Kernal Panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!

I have no experience with Linux, there were a Bunch of Windows machines on the host that I have converted and all was fine

Any help Much appreciated

You may want to check this is a supported VM by Hyper-V, we have recently had many clients, and also a few questions on EE, where Centos users on Hyper-V have migrated to VMware for support.

Did you try Starwind V2V Converter, to convert from VMDK to VHD ?

Am I right in saying the conversion tool you mentioned in your guide does no support Vsphere 4.0

vSphere 4.0 is very old, those are the details given to me by Microsoft!

It's worth a try, if it fails you know why, it's not supported.
