Hi,

We have a old VM running in a esx 5.5 that come from vmware converter, and now we need to increase the space disk and when I edit the VM settings, the Hard disk show as unsupported with the message (This type of virtual device is supported on this host, but not for the bus (e.g. IDE or SCSI)

How can I convert this kind of old virtual disk?

Thanks

Why not convert the VM?
Make sure to have a good VM backup before trying the upgrade route, or better still, run the upgrade on the VM restored from backup.

This way you will have confirmed the backup works, and that the convert is available.

If you can do the test in an isoalted network such that the existing can continue running while .... since it is unknown how long the process might take.. ... .. ... . . ..
