Hi all,

My parents are having the exact problem described in this thread (and I've been tasked with remote tech support):

http://communities.vmware.com/thread/167207

Upon startup, WinXP gives them a BSOD reboot loop while indicating that a DLL file is possibly corrupt. Booting in Safe Mode won't work, and reverting to an earlier snapshot merely delays the problem by 24 hours or so.

The obvious and ideal solution would be to boot into Repair mode from the install disc and copy the clean DLL to replace the damaged copy. The problem is that, according to the thread, I'll need to first get Fusion to accept a floppy image of SCSI adapter drivers for me to even be able to enter Repair mode. The link for that image was broken in the thread, but a little Googling directed me here:

Is this what I want, or am I looking for something else entirely?

Any ideas on this? Windows Setup isn't seeing the drive because the SCSI adapter drivers aren't loaded in, and I have no idea which ones to connect because the link in that thread no longer directs to them. I'm thisclose to paying the $30 to open a support ticket with VMware, because it's shocking how light the traffic on their support forums is.
