    Hi I have OSX 10.8.2 and Vmware 5 fusion to the latest upgrade.
    Since I have Windows 7 Boot Camp partition I used Vmware to bring in the Boot Camp and worked fine until today.

    But today somehow it gave me an error and I had to keep pressing Continue in order for the desktop to load.

    Error message is as follows:

    The operation on file "/dev/rdisk0s4" failed.
    If the file resides on a remote file system, make sure that the network connection and the server where this disk resides are functioning properly. If the file resides on removable media, reattach the media.
    Select Retry to attempt the operation again.
    Select Cancel to end this session.
    Select Continue to forward the error to the guest operating system.

    Now, until today I've been using Boot Camp just fine. But I do recall turning on my Home Sharing Group or something with my other Windows 7 PC desktop, by turning on sharing folders and stuff like that.

    Would that be the reason why? I absolutely did not have any issues loading the Boot Camp partition from Vmware 5 until today.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
