"STOP 0x0000007b" Boot Physical Partition Vista 64-bit from Ubuntu 8.04 32-bit

Host:

VMWare Build: 6.5.0 build-118166

OS: Ubuntu 8.04 32-bit

HardDisk: Sata2

Bios configuration: IDE Compatible

VM:

Vista 64-bit Physical Partition (actually same harddisk as host) (dev/sda1)

Problem:

After booting Vista I get the infamous STOP 0x0000007b.

Tried:

Searching a LOT, but nothing seems to fit into my situation. I have tried manually editing the vmx and vmdx and replace scsi with IDE but that did not make any difference.

What is going on? What can I attempt to do? Thank you so much in advance!

PS. I have uploaded the original vmx and vmdx but I have also attempted to edit those 2 files to match this guide:

That failed too. (consists of replacing all scsi to IDE in vmx and in the vmdx replace ddb.adapterType = "lsilogic" to ddb.adapterType = "ide"

getting a BSOD 7b is expected behaviour when booting a real metal Windows from a physical disk inside a VM.

I don't know if embedded Converter from Workstation can configure Vista-64bit ?

I am not sure what you mean but I definitely had the option of choosing "Vista 64-bit Edition" when creating the VM.

Any idea's on how to solve the problem? If it is eavenly possible to solve?

Just setting the guestOS doesn't help - try embedded converter ...

MENU > Import ...

Please explain yourself. Sorry for probably being ignorant but googling embedded converter gives me nothing. MENU > Import from where?

Forgot to ask - do you need to use the Vista as native boot-option ?

if yes - Converter will not help ...

Yes I would still like to preserve my dual boot option so basically I wan't the ability of:

Choosing Ubuntu or Vista at boot.

Booting Vista in VMWare from the physical partition as Ubuntu guest.

Maybe I am having so much trouble because this isn't even possible?

Forget it - Vista has no hardware-profiles so you can't switch easily
