VMWware Fusion Player 13 won't load existing bootcamp vm.

Hey, I've got a bootcamp VM that is running fine in Fusion 12, but try to load in 13 ( on Latest Ventura public beta, but had same issue in tech previews on Monterey too I think ) and I get the following:

Any idea on possible reasons for the error listed?
