If the rollover IRA money is converted to Roth, that Roth money cannot be rolled into a future employer's plan. I don't know if converting part of a rollover IRA to Roth causes the remaining money to be unrollable into a future employer's plan.

That was a great reply. As to your last sentence, the partial conversion of a conduit IRA to a Roth IRA does not affect the status of the money left in the conduit IRA. Whatever is left in the conduit IRA remains eligible for a possible future transfer to an employer's qualified retirement plan that accepts rollover money from an old employer's plan of the same type.
