I am trying out VM Workstation 9.0 on Windows and I am tried to run the existing linux partition by following steps blow:
Create a new VM > Advanced > Choose to install the OS later > select Debian 6 64bit > .... > Use Physical Disk > Use individual partion > Select the partition (not the swap) > Finish
The message I get here is
and nothing else. So it is not seeing the OS properly. I am dual booting on my machine Windows 7 Pro and Crunchbang Waldorf 64-bit. The default MBR is Grub and I have set the timeout on Grub for me to select which partition to boot. I also tried to change the boot order and also tried to boot from a LiveCD, but had no success. My hard drive is SSD and its IDE interface was shown as ATAPI and I chose LSI logic. From my understanding what I am trying to do is achievable, so what am I doing wrong here?
This is a possible duplicate to this, but it is 2.5 year old post and I am having a trouble getting it to work.
