Thanks in advance!

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?

You can hit Enter to continue the boot device search.

Also cross verify BIOS settings and boot orders.
