Hi,



I found a way to boot Dapper without recreating the VM.

I found a site giving some useful tips for manipulating virtual disks
:

http://sanbarrow.com/vmx-disks-tips1.html



So i replaced this line in my VM's vmx file :


Code:
--------------------
    scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic"
--------------------


by :


Code:
--------------------
    scsi0.virtualDev = "buslogic"
--------------------




Then I rebooted the VM. VMware noticed the changes and asked if I
wanted to change the SCSI adapter. I said Yes and Dapper booted fine
:-)



Hope it helps.
