This was a common problem a few years ago, I am not sure if it still exists.
There is a connection you need to add which makes it work, I am forgetting which one. I think making the guest os bios change the hdd type to IDE would work.
I guess you would also needed to apply the vmware-any-any patch.

I have stopped using the vmware workstation/server moved on to VirtualBox. Although, I work with ESX server.

Try the latest version released and VirtualBox instead of vmware.
