I can confirm every single word. It is a pity that I didn't look here before spending a couple of hours re-configuring and re-installing vmware workstation.
I'm really sorry about this issue. An internal bug has been filed and investigation is on going. We will root cause this and fix it asap.
Can you try to see whether below workaround works? -- launch Workstation by "Run as Administrator"(Choose Workstation icon, right click it, and then click "Run as Administrator").
Just ran into the same problem.
VM's not using a physical disk boot fine.
Tried recreating the VM using the same physical disk, and still just blank screen on boot.
Revert to 14.1.2 and the physical disk VM is working again.
Also after installing 14.1.3 and rebooting windows repair triggers on the host.
Tried it a couple of times and it always happens.
14.1.2 install reboots fine after install.
Running Workstation as Administrator works as a workaround for me. Looking forward to the update.
Is there any progress/update on this issue with a new fixed release?
