Server 2008 Virtual Iron to XenServer winlogon.exe corrupt

During a conversion of Server 2008 to XenServer the first boot worked great. Upon reboot the server responded with an error that "winload.exe - the selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt"

Booting to the install disk and choosing repair then command prompt. I then ran the following:
Bcdedit /set {device} osdevice “partition=C:”
Bcdedit /set {device} device “partition=C:”
Bdedit /set {bootmgr} device “partition=C:”

I then also had to ensure that the device ID (on storage tab) where set properly for each drive.

Reboot and worked fine.
