I have recently reinstalled windows xp pro on my system.
After its successful installation, I uninstalled and reinstalled fusion (version 1.1, build 62573) as it was giving me the following error before.
The screenshot is attached below:
Boot camp partition
Cannot open the disk ‘/users/beige/library/application support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/boot camp/%2Fdev%2Fdisk0/boot camp partition.vmwarevm/boot camp partition.vmdk’ or one of the snapshot disks it depends on
I thought after a fresh reinstall it would work fine but still the same error persisted. I tried again by removing the boot camp partition file but still my problem was not solved.
Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
Boot camp partition cannot open the disc
There is a way to resolve this error connected with the issue of the boot camp partition.
Here are the steps to follow:
The file virtual disk which the virtual machine is pertaining must be identified:
First, back up the (VMX file) for future editing. Then follow these steps in the link:
Locate a line which starts with: scsi0:0.fileName = (or this) ide0:0.fileName =
In the line, after the equal sign, A file name is quoted. The file name which is quoted must not be a slice but either virtual disk or a snapshot disk.(For more information, these are the list of the file extensions and their descriptions: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1021016)
If the slice is pointed, make these necessary changes. For example,
Windows 2000 Home -000001-s007.vmdk" to "Windows 2000 Home -000001.vmdk
"Windows Vista-s021.vmdk" to "Windows Vista.vmdk"
Then, before exiting, save the file in the setting file and exit.
After that, restart fusion.
Then run your virtual machine.
If the Problem is not resolved, follow the instructions.
Hope it’ll help.
