Win Vista PE+usb not recognized+ VMWARE


This is a solution i tried to make ghost copies with winPE in VMWare.
It recognizes on the hard drive and not the USB devices. So I was unable to make the save the image from the ghost copy.

Make a copy of the vmdk file in the wmware folder and name it as xxxx_1.vmdk. In the vmware setting add a new Hard Drive with the new vmdk file(xxxx_1.vmdk). Boot the image with windows PE. Now it will show up 2 hard drives. So the image of the one hard drive can be saved to the other one. Once done shutdown the VM. Rename the two vmdk files. Boot the operating system with the new vmdk. Then the image can be transfered using FTP(or copying).

Hope this may be helpful.
