When trying to boot a Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit guest from a physical partition on a Windows 7 host, I get the following error message:
We rely on your feedback to improve the quality of our products. Please submit a support request describing the problem at the Web page "http://vmware.com/info?id=8". Please attach the log file (C:\Users\unisci\Documents\Virtual Machines\Ubuntu Test\vmware.log) and the core files (C:\Users\unisci\Documents\Virtual Machines\Ubuntu Test\vmmcores.gz, C:\Users\unisci\Documents\Virtual Machines\Ubuntu Test\vmware-vmx-debug-3984.dmp).
To collect data to submit to VMware support, choose "Collect Support Data" from the Help menu.
You can also run the "vm-support" script in the Workstation folder directly.
We appreciate your feedback,

The version of VMWare Workstation is: 8.0.2 build-591240
Unfortunately the webpage doesn't let my file a support incident, even if the error message asks me to.
Is there any address where I can send the log and crash dump file to?
Or is there a workaround? I've already tried changing the adapter type (IDE/SCSI), which had no effect.
Welcome to communities!!
What's is the Ubuntu code name you are trying to boot? Check this version of Ubuntu is supported in WS 8.
If so file a support request with VMware, the following URL will help you.
Can you upload the log file C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Virtual Machines\Ubuntu Test\vmware.log? We can have a quick look and find out if its a known issue.
