NTVDM CPU ILLEGAL INSTRUCTION

    Question

  • Original title: Running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 on a virtual machine (based on a partition created with VMWare Fusion 3.2) and I keep getting the following Error message that will not go away.

    It states: the NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.

    CS: 051e IP:ef0c OP:Of 04 00 00 00.  Choose Close to terminate the application.

    Whether I choose Close or Ignore it keeps popping back up and is interfering with normal shut down and restart operations, causing me to have to force a hard shut down of the virtual machine every time.

    This persists even after trying a manual clean boot.  Solutions?
