I just updated my Yosemite (OS 10.2) virtual machine on my workstation 10 to Yosemite OS 10.5 and now it doesn't start anymore.
On the boot it goes a while on progession bar, but after maybe the half of progression bar it just shuts down. Takes about maybe 5 Minutes so far.
In the log file I read along the long log this error:
2015-10-24T15:59:42.061+02:00| vmx| I120: FILE: FileDeletionRetry: Non-retriable error encountered (D:\Eigene Dateien\My Virtual Machines\OS X Yosemite\OS X Mavericks.vmx~): The system cannot find the file specified (2)
I guess this is the crucial part but don't understand the message (abottom I have bit more of the logfile).
I have Workstation 10.0.7 on Windows 8.1 Enterprise - 64-Bit
I could play back a snapshot I took before this update, but I prefer to fix the error.

Unfortunately Apple does not allow you to run a virtual mac OS X on non-Apple branded hardware.
Hope you understand,
Then I copy the vm to my MacBook Pro from 2009/11 with El Capitan vs1 (OS 10.11.1) into Fusion 8.0.1 and I have the same problem.
Could we discuss it now?
Please attach a vmware.log file from the problem VM as was booted at VMware Fusion and I'll see what it says.
edit: I need a full vmware.log file, not an excerpt as above and please attach using the attach button at the bottom right and not copy&paste contents.
