I loaded ESXi 4.1 to a USB on a server which had 3.5 loaded locally. I see the datastore of the 3.5 and added the one VM it has on it to inventory (added the VMX file to inventory). then went to start the VM and get the following error

"Module DevicePowerOn power on failed.
Unable to open the SCSI device '/vmfs/devices/genscsi/vml.020100000050060b00005f5c4a556c74726975' (scsi0:2): Could not find the file. "

Any Ideas? It does have one snapshot, but I have done this before on other servers and it loads up fine. I unplugged the USB and restarted back to the 3.5 build and the VM loads fine.
