[PVE-User] w2008r2 p2v

Hello to everybody,

till recently I hoped that I had 100% reliable solution for doing p2v
this way:


and it worked perfectly till the last virtualization of w2008r2

So I succesfully did the step from physical to vmware with the little 
help from vmware converter :-) and it works in vmware player.

But then after I converted vmdk to qcow2   the machine will not boot ... 
it just stops at the very beginning saying (bios screen) Boot from hdd 
....     and it just waits  and waits

I thought that if something works in vmware player it will work 100% in 

Is there any step that I could do wrong ?

any tip/hint will be very appreciated

thank you very much in advance


/srdačan pozdrav / best regards/
