You will have to recreate the vmx file for the machine to run. Take the following steps:

  1. Note the specifications of the misconfigured VM (Processor, RAM, etc)
  2. Right click on VM; Click “Remove from Inventory”.
  3. Create new customized VM with the same specifications as the base machine.
  4. Attach the hardisks attached with the previous machine (VMDK’s)
  5. Once the VM is created and configured; power it on.
  6. If everything went according to the steps; the VM will turn on without any problems.
