If you go into the VM's settings, what "Controller" does it say it has...IDE or SCSI? If IDE, change it to SCSI. See this KB on how to do so:

Virtual device node adapter is SCSI 0.  looks like its already set to SCSI, is there any other settings that might need to be changed?

I am using vmware free server 2.0

Thanks.

Can you boot in safe mode? Otherwise try to remove the vNIC from your VM, boot the machine and see what happens. If it boots install VMtools and power it down and then add the vNIC.

no, that did not work. i cannot even boot to safemode. it just stays stuck on the safemode screen.
is it possible that the P2V did not go through successful, even though it said it did?

Yes...it sure is. Something certainly have corrupted during the process. You can retry it, stopping any and all services where possible, A/V processes, etc....
