I received the following error whe trying to load Windows R2 on a new VMWare Image
The buslogic SCSI adapter is not supported for 64-bit guests in this release. Please consult the documentation for the appropriate type of SCSI adapter to use with 64-bit guests.
Failed to configure virtual device scsi0.
The problem was due to me having a default image created as Windows XP so already a 32bit.
To correct I setup a new image and specified the Windows R2 Standard as the operating system.
