Converting win7 vmware to proxmox


Feb 13, 2022
I know, it's an old question and I've read many many posts but nothing seems to solve the problem.
I'm trying to import a win7 machine which works but then it never boots.
I've tried removing as many drivers as possible, changing the controller, removing the network but the vm never boots.

I've seen posts about exporting the vmware disks, creating a proxmox vm, then copying the disks over but I keep finding posts that have bits and pieces of what I need but never the complete solution.

Does anyone know of a URL or doc that explains how to convert win XP, win7 and win 10 vmware virtual machines?
