I converted with VMware vCenter Converter Standalone a Windows 2003 to VMware Workstation.

but it cannot boot, i tried fixmbr, fixboot chkdsk.... i searched about the error stop 0x0000007B and refers to driver instalation (sata. scsi...) but the guest in WORKSTATION is set in IDE, the real machine is a SATA HD ( SAMSUNG SP0812C )

I cant find any option to change it to LSILOGIC, a SCSI kind, or even SATA or how i can fix it.

The guest system only show the Windows loading screen by 2 seconds and after the attached BSDO
