    Just to clarify: Are you getting this error when trying to start a VMware virtual machine ? If so, was the virtual machine itself (not the player) moved from the external drive too ?

    Yes it is the virtual machine im trying to install. However, I found a way for my OS to automaticlly troubleshoot the problem and it stated that my current version was set to Windows XP and need to configure the setting for Windows 7. After restarting my computer VMware Player is installed and im able to run my Linux. Just in time to start working on my finals. Thx guys.
