VMWare Not Playing Nice with Server 2008 SP2

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Windows | Posted on 03-06-2009

I just had to restart my VM and went ahead and applied Server 2008 SP2 to it.  When it rebooted I got this error:

VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (vcpu-1)
NOT_IMPLEMENTED d:/build/ob/bora-156735/bora/lib/disklib/sparse.c:6283
A log file is available in “D:\Virtual Machines\QLDevTools\vmware.log”.  A core file is available in “D:\Virtual Machines\QLDevTools\vmware-vmx-7004.dmp”.  Please request support and include the contents of the log file and core file. 
To collect data to submit to VMware support, select Help > About and click “Collect Support Data”. You can also run the “vm-support” script in the Workstation folder directly.
We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.

If you are running Server 2008 in a VM and thinking about upgrading to SP2, you may want to wait.  If  find a fix I’ll let you know.

NOT_IMPLEMENTED d:/build/ob/bora-156735/bora/lib/disklib/sparse.c:6283 is from the host… Which I believe was Windows 7?
Join WS 7 Tech Preview 🙂 communities.vmware.com/community/beta/workstation Windows 7 is supported there
