NEWB - Windows 7 VM BSOD

New to virtualisation and though I'd try VMWare. I've used the VMWare converter to convert a Windows 7 laptop to a VM, when I try and start the VM in VM Player on another computer I get a BSOD and a seemingly endless loop of Windows failed to start normally, launch repair.

Any hints or pointers on where to start from the attached log please?

Hi and welcome

Converter converted your win7 into a IDE-disk.
That will not work.

Either run the Converter again and this time assign the LSI-SAS controller insteads of "automatic" or .... faster but trickier ...
read my notes
and configure the imported disk as LSI-SAS

Do you need support with a recovery problem ? - send a message via skype "sanbarrow"

You might as well want to try the VMware Converter configuration tool. That seems to fix most of these 7B Blue screens. I have documented the full procedure at: 

vCenter Converter Windows 7 7B Blue Screen

I hope this help,
