Converting Windows 2003 running VMWare VM into Hyper-V VM using MVMC

User generated image User generated imageUser generated image
Hi,
 
 I am trying to convert Windows 2003 Server running virtual machine "FS1_W2003-recovered"  in VMWare ESXi server into Hyper-v virtual machine using Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter and have some questions:
 (1) In Connection option screen, I am not sure if the message means or applies to my situation?
 (2) In Connection option screen, why I can't select "On" for "Final state of source virtual machine"?
 (3) In Summary Screen, should I be concerned about the warnings (1. OS not supported  2. having one USB device) ?
(4) In Completion screen, I see "Uninstall tools" on the 3rd line. I assume it will uninstall VMWare tools? If so, why does it do that? Will it alter or harm existing VMWare VM in any shape or form?  This is where I CANCELLED the conversion because I was not sure what would happen to source VM.

2003 was NEVER supported by MVMC!

Use Disk2Vhd
agree with previous experts.

for offline conversion, DISK2VHD is the best way to go. moreover, i actually don't see any point for you to covert this VM online.
