I'm trying to virtualize a physical server, which contains two volumes (C: and D:). The operating system resides on volume c:, and I don't want to copy over volume d:. This shows up correctly in the converter, with c: as system and d: as active. However, I can't seem to uncheck the d: drive. Is there anyway to do this without taking the d: drive offline? Why won't it let me uncheck this volume?

Are C and D different partitions on the same device? –  andyhky Oct 31 '10 at 17:17
Yes they're different partitions on the same device, is my only option to format the D partition and have VMWare resize it? –  Geoffrey Oct 31 '10 at 21:25
Are you using disk mode or volume mode for "data copy type"? Switching to volume mode should allow you to uncheck a non-system volume. –  andyhky Nov 1 '10 at 14:11
under data copy type I only see "select volumes to copy" there's nothing else in the drop down. –  Geoffrey Nov 2 '10 at 23:08

1 Answer 1

Have you tried dismounting D prior to running the conversion tool?
