VM fails to start, no visible errros

This post was originally published on this site

My VM started giving me trouble, when opening it it would act like it was going to start it up and I’d get a black screen and Windows never starts.  I’d have to use task manager to stop the VMWare, I thought I had a corrupt VM, so I got a new one from a software partner thinking I’ll start over with a new VM, but same results, black screen, Windows never starts.

 

I de-installed and re-installed VMWare Ver 14.5 twice now.  I tried running vmware.exe in admin mode, and at first I thought I was good, the VM opened, Windows started and I logged in.  Then I shut down Windows and simply restarted the VM without ever leaving VMWare and no good, starts to reboot, but I get stuck with a black screen.

 

Don’t know what to try, vmware.log file attached.
