Changing Boot Devices Without Reinstalling Windows 7

    All,

    I was given an image of a Windows 7 machine on an IDE drive to build
    into a VM (VMware Workstation 7) for evidence collection. I use BESR
    to generate a sv2i file, then imported the sv2i into a VM using VMware
    Workstation's import utility. However, the VM crashes on boot with a
    Stop: 0x0000007B
    (0xFFFFFA60005AF9C0,0xFFFFFFFFC0000034,0x0000000000000000,0x0000000000000000).
    I believe that the 07B is a complaint about an inaccessible boot
    device. I have never seen the original machine, but I expect that it's
    a SATA drive and VMware Workstation is set up with a standard IDE
    controller. Can anyone suggest a way to substitute the standard IDE
    drivers in an existing build?

    Thanks,
    Larry
