Import fails before starting import log


Tried to import a site that was exported from 2007 to 2010. Fairly basic list with a bunch of views of the data. Export was 11 files worth of data and pointed to the first file. Tried importing to new site and also tried selecting existing blank site.
Getting the following error in event log:

  1. Save your MOSS2007 list as template (.stp). And Download it to local machine folder
  2. Rename the original .STP to .CAB
  3. Extract its manifest.xml to a local folder (lets call it {workingfolder})
  4. Search for the ProductVersion element. This should have a value of 3
  5. Change its value to 4
  6. Repackage the manifest.xml into a .CAB. by using makecab.exe in the C:\Windows\System32 folder
    Syntax: makecab.exe {workingfolder}\manifest.xml {workingfolder}{template-name}.cab
  7. Change the generated cabinet's extension from .CAB back to .STP and upload it into the Sp2010 (_catalogs/lt)
  8. Create List using this template in SP2010
