Migrating from ESXi to Hyper-V with Server 2003 DC

Migrating from ESXi to Hyper-V with Server 2003 DC

Hi I am trying to find the best way to migrate from ESXi to Hyper-V with Server 2003 DC with two hard drives. I know I should not snapshot the DC so I guess what's the best way to do this. Here is the one catch I only have on physical host.

Should I uninstall the VMware tools, shutdown all my servers, export the vm to an OVF, uninstall ESXI, install HyperV, convert the OVF to use with HyperV, import the machine and than boot up?
