WinPE or Windows 7/8 not seeing VMWare Workstation VM Hard Drives issue

By | November 7, 2013

When attempting to capture an XP image using MDT2012U1 from a VMWare Workstation machine, I ran into an issue because WinPE could not see the Hard Drive when attempting the .WIM capture.  After some searching, I found that adding the following setting to my Virtual Machine’s .VMX configuration file fixed the issue.

Another useful setting is to force the VMWare machine to emulate an Intel E1000 adapter.
