Downloaded Guest OS files from 6.0

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?

  1. Have you tried exporting the VM as an OVF file set? That consolidates all the necessary files needed to import the VM into another host. It also makes the VMDK files smaller as well.
