Corrupted Windows 2000 Pro/Datacenter Server VMware image

So, yesterday I downloaded the Windows 2000 vmdk, intending to convert it into an OVF or RAW file to upload to my VPS host. However, when I ran VMWare Fusion Converter, the convert process failed with a generic "Operating System Missing" error. I booted it on VirtualBox on my laptop, I got a flicker of a Windows BOOTMGR screen and then a black screen saying "Nonexistent Operating System, Rebooting..." at the top. Please fix this as soon as possible. I was gladly able to install a Windows 2000 Server ISO into a new vmdk, but it would sure be nice to have a "set it and forget it" VMWare image that I can use on cloud VPS providers. I love Win2k as it is very versatile and secure, even in today's world, so I wish there was an easier way to boot it on a VMWare/VirtualBox/KVM host.
