If a newly converted virtual machine does not start properly in the destination virtual environment, try reconfiguring it with Converter Standalone.

Problem

A number of configuration issues might prevent a newly created virtual machine from starting properly. For example, Converter Standalone might need to disable some legacy drivers to allow the virtual machine to operate. If the operating system on the source machine is not on the default drive, the boot.ini file or the BCD might need to be modified so that the destination virtual machine can start.

Solution

  1. On the Options page of the Configuration wizard, select Reconfigure destination virtual machine and click Next.

    Converter Standalone reconfigures the destination virtual machine so it can boot in the virtual environment.

What to do next

You can customize the guest operating system or view the Summary page of the Configuration wizard.
