  • When we were doing a migration from VMware to Hyper-V last autumn, I don't remember encountering anything similar.  We were using a 3rd party converter though. Have you tried using something except MVMC and see if the error persists? Because that would mean, something is wrong with the VMDK being converted. 

    Try using  Starwind's v2v and let's see if it works.

    V2V converter :
