We have a P2V'd virtual server that we cannot install VMWare tools on.
After the P2V we tried installing the tools but noticed the Tools CD never mounted. Upon further investigation it appears that the IDE Controller is not working which would explain why the CD never mounts.
In Device manager the status is "This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)"
I have tried removing it and letting Windows find it again.
I have a feeling that this would be fixed by the guest tools install but I have no idea how to get them on the VM now (the NIC does not work either).
Windows Server 2003 SP2
The physical was a Dell PowerEdge 2950
Any help getting the Tools installed would be appreciated.
