I have three SLES 10 VM's running on Citrix Xenserver and I want to migrate them to VMware; however, when I tried using the VMware Converter on the first VM, the job aborted at 99% because it couldn't find the menu.lst.

I have tried in vain to figure out how these VM's are booting (they all do). Citrix says to use an xe-edit-bootloader command that's supposed to dump me into an editor with the grub.conf but I don't seem to have one of those either.

Can anyone tell me what strategy Xenserver uses to boot Suse VM's?

Thanks.

Hi
The menu.lst resides in /boot/grub and the grub.conf in /etc/

What version of Citrix Xenserver are you running?
