In order to succesfully convert Windows systems to a VMware virtual machine, you need to install the sysprep files of the to be converted host. Below is a list of downloads to these sysprep files:

The base folder of where to put the files is always:

Quote
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\sysprep

Windows 2000 SP4

  • Extract contents to: base-folder\2k
  • Available in SP4 or the CD-ROM of Windows 2000 SP4 at Support\Tools\Deploy.cab

Windows 2003 SP2 (32-bit)

Windows 2003 SP2 x64

Windows 2003 SP1 (32-bit)

Windows XP SP2 & SP3(32-bit)

Windows XP SP2 x64

For SBS, use their standard counterparts.

Notice
Starting from Windows Vista, the sysprep tools have been built in.

2017-07-24: Fixed several of the download links as they were deprecated.

2011-10-10: I've added several deploy.cab files because the installables do not allow easy access to the files unless you actually install it on a Windows matching the package's OS.
