VMWare: Unable to upgrade Windows Server 2003 32bit to 2008 32bit

Hi All,

I need to do an in-place upgrade on a Windows 2003 32bit server.

I have the 2008 32bit dvd and it appears to install without issue.  But it hangs when the operating system gets to the green loading bar (looks like a caterpillar).

In safe mode it gets upto;

Loaded:  \Windows\system32\drivers\crcdsk.sys

Reading a couple of posts I thought swapping the BusLogic controller to a LSI Logic SAS would help, but it hasnt.

Some extra info:  I suspect the original server was P2V'd and the ESX version is 5.5

Any suggestions
