>From the Windows point of view, the hardware changed, check in device
manager that all devices are there?  In the service manager, make sure the
relevant services started up?

Also, just to double-check, did the original VM have only one disk? If it
had more than one, you just need to copy the vmdk and import it the same
way and attach it to the new VM.
