Not really. I asked VMWare if they wanted the files, they said they didn't need them, and explained that the SCSI drives were virtual devices and do not need ( nor would they benefit from ) real SCSI drivers. When I really thought about it, that made perfect sense.Just checking to see if you happened to make any headway with this, Steve.I'm going to ask VMWare support about it. The licenses my old boss bought ought to buy him something! I'll send them all the files zipped up.I looked in the *.vmx file and found this:OK, that's a problem in the conversion program.
scsi0:0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.fileName = "eCS 2.vmdk"
scsi0.present = "TRUE"
scsi0.virtualDev = "buslogic"
buslogic.noDriver = "FALSE"
Eventually, after WAY too many failed attempts at installing, and WAY too much time wasted waiting for the ISA snooper to finish, I threw in the towel.LOL! Been there; done that. Better luck next time around. ;-)
