[Resolved] VMware Workstation 8 – Windows XP VM Hang Issue
This video explains how I solved my own issue after I upgraded to VMware Workstation 8. It seems going throught he process of removing and adding virtual devices narrowed mine down the A: drive or aka Floppy Disk. I just simply disconnected it through VMware Workstation and I would recommend removing it entirely if you do not need it. To this you would need to power down the VM. Just for the record I did an upgrade for VMware workstation, however it completely uninstalls and reinstalls the new version.
1. Power Down the VM
2. Right Click and go to “Settings”
3. Click on the Floppy Drive
4. Click Remove
5. Click Ok
*NOTE* You can also just uncheck the connect at power on option as well. I hope this fixes your issue as well.
