After a P2V or a VMware hardware version update you often get redundant virtual hardware devices left over. They can be removed by doing the following.
Open a command window as Admin and then run the two commands below.
- set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
- start devmgmt.msc
When the Device Manager MMC opens ensure you select Show Hidden Devices using the View menu option.
Delete the devices that are not required.
