I have 2 vmware images, both are MS Windows guests. First image (let's we called it as image A) I created in Windows XP using VMWare Workstation 5. The second image (called it as image B) I created in Linux using VMWare Workstation 6.

I use image B in Linux without problem, but if I use image A in Linux, the whole system will freeze intermittently and then normal again then freeze again... and so on.

At first I thought it's because the image A was created by VMWare Workstation 5, so I upgraded the image to VMWare Workstation 7 in Windows XP environment, but when I run in Linux the problem still persist.

Is this problem cause by the operating system that I used when creating the image?

Note: I haven't tried run image B in Windows environment. I will test it tomorrow.
