Anyone come across an issue where you install a 08 svr guest and it reports
"checking file system on c:
The volume is clean.
windows has finished checking the disk."
During start up and after a pause does boot up, but no longer once you've install vm tools?
Post vm tools it no repair chkdsk or anything will resolve this and after the same above message just loops b/w it and safe mode start options.

There was a problem with Windows 7 / Windows 2008 R2 guests running on Virtual Hardware 7. the only option was to uninstall the SVGA driver that is installed by default with VMWare tools in the VM. That resolved the issue temporarily. I think that is what you are experiencing ..

Wish I could say i was using R2 but I'm not... I may give the SVGA driver fix a shot thought after a snapshot before a vm tools load.  I'm recreating and loading 08 64bit in a guest vm now. Thx

This seems to have fixed my issue, too.  I going to assuming the msdn version i recently downloaded of 64 bit 08 although not R2 Tagged has code that is close to the R2 release and naming iso.  Thanks.
