I'm running VMWare workstation 11 on a Windows 7 Pro host in a domain.
I've converted an old Windows XP machine to a VM (versin 6.0) with VMWare Converter 3.0.3 and upgraded it to WS11 afterwards, a procedure that worked flawless with another, similar machine (which failed after using the last converter release).
For some reasons I can't get the machine up with a regular boot (BOSD) and can't use safe mode because it needs to be reactivated first. From the VMWare logs I think I could fix the the problem, but I need to have write acces to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 on the VM, first.
I've tried to mount that VM offline a virtual disk. That works basically, but I couldn't change files there even when mounted as read/write ... when trying to delete or rename files, Explorer nags for admin credentials, but I can't figure out what credentials are right - admin credentials from the host machine fail as well as admin credentials of the physical source machine (given with domain as "host\user").
Any hint how to get acces to the VM's files ?
