Thread: My VMware XP Pro Virtual Machine is suspended

  1. #1

    Question My VMware XP Pro Virtual Machine is suspended

    One day when I was burning an ISO
    with K3b it asked to kill the vmware process
    to use the DVDrom. I killed it. Then I could not get back into my xp virtual machine. On top of that all
    of the other virtual machines now freeze at 95 percent and will not load. I tried restoring the xppro vm from a snap shot, and now a yellow pause button that says suspended, is forever suspend on my virtual machine. I cannot start it
    or stop it. I cannot start any of my other virtual machines. I have restarted about 100 times and no difference. I even tried deleting one of the virtual machines and creating a new one and that freezes at 95% also. Other than deleting all the virtual machines and reinstalling vmware, is there any other way to fix this.
    I am using vmware ESX Server 2.0. I don't even remember if I installed this with a makefile or rpm but I think it was an rpm.

    Any help appreciated,
    Bill

    ESX 2.0, or just VMware Server 2.0? There is a huge difference. ESX
    2.0 is old and was probably quite expense, where Server 2.0 is brand new
    and free.

    Can you create new VMs? Have you tried reinstalling the VM server software?

    Good luck.

    I mean the Server 2.0 because I'm using the free version.
    No I cannot create new virtual machines.
    Haven't tried reinstalling the vmware server yet.
    maybe I should try to backup the vmxfiles and then
    reinstall and see if it'll reload.
