Hello, i recently installed VMware Server on Ubuntu 7.04 x64 and i cannot run machines on my NTFS partition.
I have been running VMware Workstation 5.5 in Windows XP x64 for a long time and now i want to run my machines both in windows AND and in Ubuntu as i dual boot. i got VMware Server installed no problem in Ubuntu but it wont run my machines on the NTFS partition. i have the NTFS read/write tool installed and it works very nicely. i haven't had any problems with it yet. i know my problem is the NTFS as when i copy a machine from the NTFS to the EXT3 partition, it works. but i want to know if there is a workaround this as i don't want to have move my machines every time i want to use them. especially one of them that is 30GB. i am also staying away from the EXT3 read/write for windows because i don't want viruses and malware to come in from my linux install as it would almost be like a back door.
Thanks for all your help
