Injicera VMware drivrutiner i en dator innan P2V...

En bra artikel om detta finns här: http://technodrone.blogspot.com/2010/03/inject-vmware-drivers-into-source-os.html
Där finns även hänvisning till en KB-artikel på VMwares site som beskriver ungefär samma sak.. :)

Om den siten är nere så kommer här en kopia:
All Windows Versions (vmscsi only)

To copy the appropriate disk controller driver from a working virtual machine with a Windows guest operating system:
Download the VMware SCSI Disk Controller driver diskette here.
Copy the contents of the floppy either by mounting it or extracting the files
Right-click vmscsi.inf and click Install. The VMware SCSI drivers are installed.
Restart the source machine to complete installation.

Windows XP / 2000 / NT (buslogic and vmscsi)
Find a working VM installed with the same OS. Export these 3 registry keys.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BusLogic
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\pci#ven_104b&dev_1040
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\vmscsi
(Note: The vmscsi service registry key may not exist if VMware Tools is not installed on the virtual machine.)
Import these 3 registry keys onto your source machine.
Perform your conversion

Windows 2003 (lsilogic and vmscsi)
Find a working VM installed with the same OS. Export these 3 registry keys.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\symmpi
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\pci#ven_1000&dev_0030
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\vmscsi
(Note: The vmscsi service registry key may not exist if VMware Tools is not installed on the virtual machine.)
Import the registry keys onto your source machine.
Restart the source to complete installation.


Perform another conversion with VMware Converter.

Now will this be needed every time? No! I have performed many a P2V on all of the above Operating Systems - without any problems at all and without injecting the registry keys beforehand. But for the case that the conversion will fail - this should help you out immensely.


Personally - I would make this best practice and inject the drivers in by default
