    Checking  VMware Converter 3.0.2 Release Notes it seems supported, but I don't see which SP... I think you should only try :-)

    Don't fear to upgrade converter to release 6... it supports vCenter 4.x

    Regards

    Thanks a lot.

    I try the software.

    It can conver the windows server 2000 SP4 to ESX 4.

    I move the VM from ESX 4 to ESX 5.5 by vCenter.

    BTW,

    I found the ESX 4 can not install at the new server or VM which in the ESXi 5.5.

    I install it on a VM which created on the workstation .

    Hi

    you must check the version too, becuase converter supports only Windows 2000 with SP4.

    Regards
