There is apparently a kernel bug that creates a kernel panic when 
starting a windows guest in vmware workstation.  I have experienced this 
bug on two machines, both with workstation 8.0.6 but it has been 
reported with other versions as well: 
https://communities.vmware.com/message/2318686 .

Booting kernel 2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64 instead of 
2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64 resolves the issue.

Just a heads up for those who may encounter it.

Cheers,
B.J.
