    Hi,

    I was wondering if it's possible to convert a VMware guest so that it
    can run under Virtual PC 2007?

    I can convert the VMDK to VHD using vmtoolkit's tool, but then, after I
    create a new VPC guest, and try to boot it, it hangs. When I try to
    Safe boot, it hangs at agp440.sys. I've tried deleting agp440.sys from
    the VHD, but then it still hangs, at mup.sys.

    Does anyone know how this can be done?

    Thanks,
    Jim

  2. AGP.SYS and MUP.SYS aren't the cause, they're just the last thing
    shown on the screen.

    1. Go back to VMWare and remove the VMTools first
    2. Try converting again.
    3. If you still can't boot, you'll probably need to do a repair
    installation of Windows so the correct MB, HD controller, etc drivers
    are detected and installed
