Hi guys,

I donwloaded one of the Vms and I'm trying to used it in an ESX environment. I create the VM and add the vmk file as an existing disk, but when I power it on, I get this error:

An error was received from the ESX host while powering on VM TESTPXE. Cannot open the disk '/vmfs/volumes/5140029b-7b57bfc6-cd1f-e02f6dbbc67c/SPXESG01/CentOS-5.5-i386-virtual-machine-org.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. The system cannot find the file specified VMware ESX cannot find the virtual disk "/vmfs/volumes/5140029b-7b57bfc6-cd1f-e02f6dbbc67c/SPXESG01/CentOS-5.5-i386-virtual-machine-org.vmdk". Verify the path is valid and try again.

Any ideas? I tried several times by tweaking the VM settings, but nothing seems to help.
