problem with a WMWARE SERVER and Windows server 2003

Hi every body:

I'm trying to virtualizze a windows server 2003, i'd taken and image with WMWARE converter and later i'd converted to WMWARE server.

When I start the virtual Machine it asks me to active the windows, ok i do it and the next restart alll work fine.

Later when i restart the machine and open the sesion , the virtual windows server 2003, detect new hardware and and shut down the system.

What can we do?
Can i Enter in safe mode?

thanks

Dani

Try to boot it normally and see what happens. You should be able to boot in Safe Mode if normal boot won't work.

When it shut down, weren't you able to restart it? Does it load to Windows logo step?

When you first stat VMware using image of Win2003 it asks if the file was moved or copied by you, did it ask you? If yes then answer - Yes, I moved it or I copied it.
I am going to reproduce your step and see if I get similar problems.

Hi noxcho
Thank you very much your interes, we've made same test and the result is the same, the windows starts correctly but it has something to do the system shutdown, Now we need to enter in safe mode but we don't know how do it in VMWARE server 2.0 .
Do you Know?

Stop the Virtual Machine, then go in to its settings and choose to go into the BIOS setup screen at the next startup.

When you'll exit the BIOS you'll be able to hit F8.

Sorry, has been busy recently to get to my test environment. Will do at the end of the week the promised test. As for Safe Mode you can get to it by pressing F8 key.
Have a look on attached screen shot.
