Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough ?)
- Check root = (did the system wait for the right device ?)
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)

a file I/O error has occurred while accessing vmware converter

While converting physical Windows 7 machine to Virtual machine of infrastructure type, I got this error. The error seems it is unable to read/write source or destination datastore.

I have installed VMware-converter-en-6.2.0-8466193 on Windows 7 physical machine with option locally selected. (not at server/client option)

All of my ESXi servers are connected to the vCenter Server, so I had to use vCenter Server's IP address to send this physical machine to the virtual world.

The issue i found was with the dns resolution to the vCenter Server's hostname. Since I am not using the same dns server on the Windows 7 client machine. So I updated the host entries manually for the vCenter Server's hosname to it IP address.

After adding dns eteries to the hostfile of windows 7, I am not getting this "a file I/O error has occurred while accessing vmware converter" and the migration has started.

Connection control operation failed for disk 'ide1:0'

I was getting this error while removing Operating System ISO image mounted on the Virtual Machine.

What worked for me, is
1. Uncheck the "Connected and Connect at power on" from Device Status.
2. Then Change the Device type from "Datastore ISO File to Client Device" Radio Button
3. and press OK to save the changes.

Note:- I was able to remove the mounted ISO only by directly logging to the ESXi at https://esxi-ip-address/ui

where it asks

"The guest operating system has locked the CD-ROM door and is probably using the CD-ROM, which can prevent the guest from recognizing media changes. If possible, eject the CD-ROM from inside the guest before disconnecting. Disconnect anyway and override the lock?"

You need to select yes to eject the CD-ROM and then remove the ISO file successfully.

Verify if the docker service is started with following command$ service docker status
If docker is not started then start with following command $ sudo service docker start
Logout from GNS3 Virtual Machines and log back. Start gns3 and use alpine linux.
