"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You must have the vmware bios set to network boot first.

If it stays there, then it doesn't recognise the bootdisk as bootable.

Looks like your OS is failing to load. IS it a windows machine? How exactly did you copy it?

The virtual disk is missing or corrupted, and is default booting from the Network, not the virtual disk.

Check there is a virtual disk attached?

Check there were no snapshots when you moved the VM?
