Imported VHDX fails to run in Hyper-V Server

Hi,
 
 I created a VHDX file from Windows 2012 Server running as VM on ESXi Host. Then I copied the VHDX file into the Virtual Hard Disk folder in Hyper-V 2016 Server and created  a VM using existing VHDX file, assigned RAM, CPU  and Virtual Network Adapter. When I start this VM, it only shows a blinking cursor at the beginning and stays that way.
 I have tried Legacy Network Adapter and tried to press [F8] to start in safe mode, but to no avail.
 What else can I try?

Thanks.

I don't have experience with this, but I believe that a conversion needs to be made when moving from ESXi to Hyper-V.  Take a look at this: http://askme4tech.com/how-convert-vmware-virtual-machine-hyper-v

Since MVMC failed to convert Windows Server 2003 into Hyper-V server, I automatically assumed that MVMC would not work for newer server OS than W2003.

Is there some kind of Software compatibility chart for MVMC as to what version of OS it will convert?

and that's not a surprise!

MVMC is NOT supported for 2003. 2012 is one of the operating systems supported for conversion.

MVMC was developed by Microsoft long after 2003 was End of Life.

The Support OS for conversion are listed in my EE Articles, which I've posted.

Please also remember that MVMC was End of Life-ed by Microsoft in 2016!
