Default Bug#499378: linux-image on lenny hangs when running in vmware-instance

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-686
Version: 2.6.26-1-686

We are using VMware-Servers for our Infrastructure.
When upgrading to lenny from etch within a vmware
the system becomes broken, because the kernel waits saying

Begin: Waiting for root filesystem...

and then fails with

ALERT! /dev/sda1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell
...
...
...
/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
(initramfs)


Selecting the older kernel-entry from grub of course works.

I am using Debian GNU/Linux Lenny, kernel 2.6.26-1-686

Which version of VMware? They had a bug in the SCSI target emulation
which makes the driver believe there are no devices.

2.6.18? Can you test the 2.6.24 from Etch?
