Error 41300: Failed to convert the virtual machine

907 users found this article helpful


I cannot convert my VMware virtual machine. Instead I get the following error message:

    Error 41300: Failed to convert the virtual machine


If the steps above do not help, try to convert the virtual machine using the Terminal commands:

Please note that instead of <path to .vhd>, you need to write down the actual path to your virtual machine .vhd file.


    /Applications/Parallels\ /Volumes/500gb\ 1/WIN-8.VHD --no-src-check --no-reconfig

Please note you can drag and drop your virtual machine's .vhd file to the Terminal instead of typing the file path manually.

One customer reported only the following command did the trick:

    /Applications/Parallels\ OS_X\_10_10.vmwarevm/Virtual\ Disk.vmdk  --force --no-src-check --no-reconfig --allow-no-os
