Server 2008 VM Boot error

Hello,

Hoping someone can help me...I have been searching with not much luck.

I have been getting this error when booting:
Log Name: System
Source: Service Control Manager
Date: 2/18/2012 9:05:08 PM
Event ID: 7026
Task Category: None
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: MYSERVER.domain.com
Description:
The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
storflt


The server is a VMware Virtual machine. Server 2008 SP2 x64 Datacenter. I found a Microsoft KB article (#971527) that says "This event can be safely ignored. The storflt driver is only needed when Windows Server 2008 is running as Hyper-V guest"...Does that mean that since I am running as a VMware VM, I am okay?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
-Z

Correct it is NOT needed for a VMWare host

To disable the storflt driver from attempting to load, issue the following command from an MSDOS prompt:
sc config storflt start= disabled

Thanks for the fast reply, Neilsr!

Sorry for the dumb follow up question and if I am using the wrong terminology...This is happening on a VM guest server...Not the host server. Does that make a difference?

Thanks,

My Mistake, I meant to say IN THE VM GUEST.... Not the host. As the Host is vmware you couldnt do that anyway :D

So IN THE 2008 HOST do....

sc config storflt start= disabled

From a cmd prompt.
