Having followed the Howto: "How To Install VMware Server On A Fedora 7 Desktop" all went very well. VMWare just released a new version 3 days ago that even works with the current Fedora kernel with no patching or hacking. BUT: Having completed that I then rebooted into the Windows XP side of the machine. I followed the instructions to install VMWare converter: http://www.howtoforge.com/vmware_converter_windows_linux That went smoothly using C: "Disk0" I then made a Virtual machine. I followed the instructions, EXCEPT I saved the Virtual Machine to a network share on my Samba server. I then rebooted into Linux, copied the VM folder to my home directory. I ran VM Console, and Browsed to that and it saw the Virtual Machine. However, when I try and "Start" it, I get an error: "VMware Server cannot find the virtual disk 'WindowsXP.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. Reason: The system cannot find the file specified." Under the Virtual Machine Settings is the following: "Unable to get information for disk (SCSI 0:0)" Unable to open file "/home/maurice/WindowsXP/WindowsXP.vmdk": The system cannot find the file specified." Indeed, if I look in that directory, I do not find a file called : "WindowsXP.vmdk" Instead I find a file there called "WindowsXP-s001.vmdk, and several others ending in 3, 4, 7, 9 and 10.. Soo.. I am stuck. Any suggestions?
