I recently installed VMWare Fusion on my MacBook and used the built-in Migration Assistant to copy my Windows XP Pro laptop over to the MacBook. Migration seemed to go fine except that when I try to launch that VM it goes through booting Windows (XP Pro SP3) and makes it to the log-in screen, but then I get a BSOD and the VM reboots and it happens all over again.

So I think I need to do a repair re-install of Win XP Pro within the VM. However I can't seem to do this. I tried to set the VM to boot from the Windows XP install CD, but then when I got to the XP setup, it told me there were no hard disk drives available.

So how can I accomplish this?
