Well for those that must have a Windows OS heres the hack:

You must go to microsoft.com search for the tools to allow that.  What
it does is Relax The Windows IDE Checks so the disk or image can be used
as a VM or on other hardware.  You must also have the same ACPI Options
in your hypervisor.

This must be done before you use the vmware tools to create the image.
