Backup Exec System Recovery Server

I'm trying to restore a Windows 2003 Domain Controller image to a VMWare virtual server using the System Recovery Server Boot CD. It looks like it's going to start and then I get an error:

System Restore Wizard
Error E7D1001E: Unable to read from file. Error 00000040: The specified network name is no longer available.

The .v2i files are on the host operating system and I'm browsing to them using a UNC. I've also tried mapping a drive to them.

Please help.

Just like it says, there is / was a network resource critical to the loading of the OS that is no longer available, perhaps you ran it before with a different computer running, or you had a different app in VM ware that the 2003 server depended on -- or you have changed IPs or router addresses.  There is something that you have changed that is no longer there, but it is hard-coded into the 2003 registry -- one of the fatal flaws of windows, the inability to adapt to changes relative to stuff written in the registry.

I figured it out. Had to switch to "Host Only" mode in VMWare. Apparently you can't transfer large files when transferring from Host OS to Virtual OS in "Bridged Mode".

Thanks for the help though.
