In a previous questions, I requested assistance in determining why a P2V migration didn't allow me to add the VM into inventory.  I was assisted with this, however, I then received the following error:

A Disk Read Error Occured
Press Ctrl+Alt_Delete to restart

The original tech suggested that the drive was provisioned as an IDE drive instead of a SCSI drive.  However when I edit settings for this VM, the Disk Drive just says Virtual Disk so I don't see how to determine if the virtual disk drive is IDE or SCSI.

In the 'Edit Settings' area, you should see a list of all hardware associated with your VM. You should specifically notice a 'SCSI Controller'. What does it show on the right side when you click on the SCSI Controller? It should be LSI Logic, but my assumption is that it may be showing up as IDE?

Or, if it's a desktop OS (WinXP), it should be set to BUS Logic. LSI is typically reserved for server OSs.
