Good afternoon all,
This is Kelly from the vcfed. I was wondering if anyone had experience in converting physical machines to run in a virtual environment. It just seems like a skill I can find in this group.

I'm trying to help a friend convert an old XP machine that runs custom USB hardware into a virtual environment so he can keep using his equipment.

I have it running under VMWare, but it's not 100% stable. I get BSOD on shutdown about 50% of the time and about 10% of the time on system startup. I've removed all drivers for old non-needed equipment, did a repair XP install, installed the guest applications for XP and disabled sound and graphics acceleration already.
