VMware converter keeps barfing with this error (after hours of processing) while trying to convert the current XP system into a VM.

Anybody knows what might be going on?

From this thread :

Your boot.ini has a line that Converter can not handle :
C:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons
Remove it and run the "configure machine" option of Converter.

In any case, it would help if you posted the contents of your C:\boot.ini file.

if you have recovery partition on your drive, it was converting over. When you de-selected this option from converter app telling it not to move over, it prompts you with IF YOU REMOVED THIS YOUR VM WON'T BOOT, ignore it and should be fine. but if you can post log file here it will be more helpful to resolve your issue:)
