Good luck!
Okay. I've used winimage to convert the ".xva" to a ".vmdk".

Now how do I get this into VMware?

I uploaded it to datastore [datastore1], and created a new VM.
When asked "Select a Disk" I used the option "Use an existing virtual disk.....", and selected the ".vmdk".
Unfortunately this did not boot...

Did I do something wrong here?
