What version of Converter and what operating system are you trying to convert?  VMware Converter has a limit on how far back you can go.

Also the machine to be converted has to be working well.

That combination should work. Try shutting down the server, starting it back up and then converting again.  I am not sure how you would track down the "internal error". Please look in the Event Log around the time of the failed conversion.

Is it just 2003 ?

Because ONLY Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit) is SUPPORTED! on 5.5.3!

Converter logs would be helpful...
