Default vm wont boot

Hi Guys,

I have built a vm server using esxi 5.0. before i did so i took a .vhd snapshot of my drive and have converted that to a vmdk file and created a new vm using that. The vm wont boot and keeps blue screening. My guess here would be that it is because it still thinks its running on the physical hardware.

i have tried to use the original cd to repair the os but that just keeps trying to get me to do a clean install. If i choose repair it takes me to a screen with three options which are command prompt, memory diag or revert to earlier image none of which help.

and ideas on how to overcome this.

the physical conversion was a phenom x6 running win2k8 r2
