I have Windows XP running fine in VMPlayer since last 3 years.

Today, after a power failure, the guest windows just can't boot. It shows a BSOD:

BSOD in Windows XP Guest

I did try to boot in safe mode, but with same results.

I did not installed anything to the guest.

After the powerfailure, Ubuntu did a file check scan, but it didn't report any problems.

Is there anything I can do in VMWare to recover from this failure?

I'm desperate! Please help!
