Hi I wondered if you could advise I have attempted to convert a virtual machine running on ESX 3.5 Update 5 onto Hyper-V (non production test environment). Whilst it all appeared to be going well in downloading the VMDK files and placing them in their final location the conversion failed towards the end of the 'converting' phase with the message failed to provision a new virtual machine.

Can anyone advise why?

I have included an extract from the ConverterTrace log file:
