XP VM Universal Image Crash
There are multiple threads about VMs and Universal images, but not pertaining to this particular crash.
I’ve created a master XP Pro image (on IDE) in VMWare (8.0) following a guide here on the forums. However, no matter what kernel or HDD type I use (single part, multi part), the physical PC receiving the image crashes and reboots after 2 seconds of the Windows logo.
The target PC is a Dell Opti 755, I’ve tried the same HDD in a Opti 745 too. BIOS is updated. I’ve tried AHCI and ATA, and legacy modes.
It very much seems like a driver issue, since the image is getting on the target HDD, but after 12 hours of troubleshooting I can’t think anymore.

Worked like a charm!
