I have downloaded the vmx, nvram and VMDK files from a lab computer that is failing with a PSOD on a consistent basis. Uploading them to a datastore in version 6.5 and registering the vm the guest OS will not start. Stating that the vmdk files do not exist on this datastore. I remove them from settings and try to re-add them as existing drives and they are not visible in the datastore. I have done this before in 6.5
Possible VMFS version issue?
