Professional, under "Disk" you can find "Convert Virtual Hard Disk Image"
- convert to VMDK
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?
