VMware error

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I was just sat browseing OCN when suddenly I got my first ever BSOD since I installed vista and started folding, at the time I had two instances of VMware + Ubuntu running, so I reboot and go to fire them back up and I got an error, only in one of them though ;l



Is there nothing I can do other than delete that virtual machine and start over with a new WU? I find it a little strange that one has crapped out and not the other..

BTW i'm not to worried about the cause of the BSOD, i'm putting it down to randomness since i'm 100% sure my rig is stable


EDIT: I'm impatient so I went ahead and deleted it and started fresh, installed the way I did originaly but for some reason it won't connect to a work server anymore, I have it set up exactly the same as my other VMware client which is currently running fine. I have a feeling it's going to be a long night getting this to work ;l

It was extracted... It had been running for about a month with no problems. Doesn't matter now though, I just deleted that machine and started over, it finaly connected and got work too. ;]


EDIT: It said "cannot open disk 'c:\\users\\marc\\documents\\virtual machines\\ub1.5-1\\ubuntu64-bit.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. reason failed to lock the file"

I've had a few power outages whilst it was running before and it's always been fine, seems the BSOD screwed it though, leads me to believe that it was that perticular machine which caused the BSOD.. idk..

When ever I run into errors, I would just delete the Ubuntu, and reinstall that. You don't have to uninstall VMware.
