After conversion and powering On VM, blue screen with 0x0000007B appears.


The original system runs with IDE disk.

For all cloning and conversion operations to ESX 4.0/ESXi 4.0 destinations, select SCSI controller type for the target virtual machine. If an IDE controller must be created in the ESX 4.0/ESXi 4.0 destination virtual machine, use disk-based cloning to create it.
When converting the XP system, do not use IDE but SCSI as target. This solved the problem.
