Now I'm getting, File Not Found. Rebooted my physical ESXi server. My other vm boots fine.

browse the datastore and verify that the files exist.  If the vmdk files are there try creating another VM but instead of creating new hard drives choose the setting that lets you use existing hard drives.  The VMX file may be corrupt
