Hi Edgardo
Before starting the Migration, as a general rule of thumb,  you should
remove the Vmware guest extensions from the VM ( this should happen when
the VM is running inside VMware )

Also when selecting the SCSI controller type, did you try the different
SCSI controller options in the Options panel ? (If you have the VM guest
extensions installed VMware PVSCSI might be a good bet)
