Nothing seems strange, this log report a virtual machine startup (after freeze when I reset virtual machine) ... th only thing what's wrong is the host time wich differs from vm time, but this cannot generate freeze ...

Hi edox77.  lets start resolving this problem from basic step . 1-If it physical harddisk please remove it and check eventviewer  any error related to storae or storage controler .  Then again plug this harddisk and try to boot if it dididnt boot then try to connect  with another controler .still having prbole then without further stpes replace another disk.  2-if its vxd storage  If you've downloaded a .VXD file and need to know what program to use it    3-Is there any error in hostd.log log file (/var/log/vmware/hostd.log) then please uplod same .

If at first you don't succeed; call it version 1.0"
