    I decided to finally import my Boot Camp partition into VMware and after it was imported, I ran it and it says that no audio device is installed...I still have the Boot Camp partition and the virtual image as well. What do I do to get back the audio?


    EDIT: ok I fixed that by reinsalling VMware Tools but now have another problem. I ran the VM but the RAM usage skyrockets and I have only 25MB of RAM running when the VM is on. I accidentally deleted the hard drive for the VM and have this in my trash and the VM won't even boot up.

    What do I do??

    Well I managed to get it fixed. I'll write it here for reference.

    Luckily I had done a backup of the VM before I deleted the file. So I restored from Time Machine the VM image and booted it up and it went fine. As for the RAM usage, I let it settle and then a restart and RAM usage was fine again.

    Guess patience pays off
