        I'd like to try to figure out how to manually get my bootcamp partiion to get read, which is not being auto-detected.  I can then post my results. 

         

        ~/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp

         

        Can anyone upload or zip the files from the following path and e-mail them to coreduo0099@yahoo.com  ?

         

        Thanks

          I'm also have problems with the boot camp partition

          Paralles was also not working...after rename of the driver.cab file to sp2.cab was the problem solved.

            Hello

             

            I saw this and noticed a similar problem.

             

            I am running a mac mini core solo with boot camp version 1.3 on a single sata 60g hard drive.  I just recently reinstalled both osx and windows.  Prior to this I was running 10.4.9 with bootcamp 1.2 and Fusion b3.  But with the reinstall and the updated bootcamp drivers and the fusion beta I am unable to boot off of my boot camp partition.

             

            Other issue I'll throw out is that I unable to use any usb connected device within vmware.  Windows will recognize it as a flash drive or something, but is unable to make it work.

              with the reinstall and the updated bootcamp drivers and the fusion beta I am unable to boot off of my boot camp partition

               

              What happens if you try? Is the partition not bootable period? Does it blue screen? Something else?

              What version and patch level of Windows?

                it does not show up on my list of virtual machines.  Its not given as an option.

                 

                The machine has automatic updates, so when they're available, I install it.

                 

                its windows xp professional sp2

                  So Beta 3 recognized your old BootCamp install, but you reinstalled both OS X and Windows, and Beta 4 isn't recognizing your new BootCamp install? Can you think of any differences between the way you set up the BC partition?

                   

                  You should probably file a bug with the output of 'sudo fdisk /dev/rdisk0'.

                    The only thing I did differently was make the partition bigger than the previous one.

                     

                    I also did this when reinstalling. 1 reinstalled windows on the BC partition then, then used driveimage XML to restore my previous install.

                     

                    For osx, I restored some files via iBackup.  But I've tried to locate any previous vmware file to delete them (as shown in other posts). I have not found any files to delete.  I know in my old install I had files in ~/Library/Application Support/Vmware directory.  There is nothing there.

                     

                    I created a new account and only really copied over my Mailbox.

                      Sorry for the delay in replying, I finally got around to looking up what partition types we want. If it's NTFS, we check for 07, if it's FAT we check for 0C. See url=http://www.vmware.com/community/profile.jspa?userID=287836incognegro[/url]'s post in url=http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=671765&#671765 this thread[/url] for details about how to change it.
