VMware ESXi 4.0 VM

I have three vms that were migrated from one host to another. For some reason they are in a suspended mode and when I try to power them on I get the attached error.  I know that I have to edit some CPUID settings but can't do it in the current vm state.
I can't use any of the  vim-cmd vmsvc/power... comands because vmtools are not running.

Is there any other way to force a shutdown without having to reboot the host?
