Error events in system event log after P2V conversion

In this case I was converting (P2V) HP ProLiant DL 360 G4 server with Windows Server 2003 operating system installed. The conversion has completed successfully, and the VM was running as should, but the following error events were logged in system event log on every reboot:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7000
Description:
The cpqasm2 service failed to start due to the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7001
Description:
The HP ProLiant System Management Interface Driver service depends on the cpqasm2 service which failed to start because of the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7001
Description:
The HP ProLiant System Shutdown Service service depends on the HP ProLiant System Management Interface Driver service which failed to start because of the following error:
The dependency service or group failed to start.

All HP Software related to the old hardware was successfully uninstalled, but these three services were still trying to start. Here is the output of sc (service control) query for those services:

 

In order to prevent these services from starting in VM, I have deleted those services using sc delete, since they were absolutely not needed by the operating system, because the system now was running as virtual machine. Here is the screenshot of the output of sc command:
 

Happy P2V conversion ! :)
