You about to convert a windows 2003 Server machine and get the error above.
Warning: Unable to locate the required Sysprep files…..
Luckily there is an easy fix.
1. Mount or insert the 2003 Server CD/DVD or .ISO
2. Use something like winrar or even better 7zip to copy or extract the contents from deploy.cab which can be found on the CD at X:\SUPPORT\TOOLS

sysprep_deploy

3. Copy the files from the deploy.cab file to C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\sysprep\svr2003

Close the Converter and re-open it. You should no longer have this issue.
Comment if you have any questions,issues or suggestions.
