    I have 3 problems after I imported Bootcamp partition to VMware:

    My settings:
    I have VMware installed to my MAC OS X and imported bootcamp partition which had XP already installed.
    In XP, it has 3 drives, C (the Window xp OS installed in NTFS), D (DVD ROM drive), E (Data drive in FAT32).

    Problem #1:
    Once I started VMware and log into XP in bootcamp partition, a dialogue window "Found new hardware wizard" popped up and search for video controller.
    So, I inserted the MAC driver DVD but no drivers can be installed.

    Problem #2:
    When I got to Virtual Machine -> Install VMware tools, I got an dialogue box with Error 1327.
    After I clicked ok on the box, another Dialogue box appeared at the back said, "Invalid Drive:E:\ the wizard was interrupted before VMware tools could be completely installed".
    When I checked device manager, I found both "Base system device" and "Video controller" lack of drivers.

    Problem #3:
    I cannot find my E-drive in the imported Bootcamp partition

    Please help~~

    You might have better success on addressing these specific problems on the VMWare Fusion forum at the Company's website

    Hope you get it worked out... frustrating, I know
