I have moved a WMWare Workstation machine which was created in a 32-bit uniprocessor Intel, to a different hardware: AMD 64 bits, multiproccesor.
Also, the machine was created in VMWare Workstation 7 and now I got it into Workstation 8, although I think this shouldn’t be a problem.
I have read somewhere that from AMD to Intel no issues are involved.
In my case, a message appears when I power up the virtual machine in the destination physical host (AMD 64 bits, 2 microprocessors):
“THE VENDOR OF THE PROCESSOR IN THIS VIRTUAL MACHINE IS NOT THE SAME AS THE VENDOR OF THE PROCESSORS IN THE MACHINE ON WHICH THE VIRTUAL MACHINE STATE WAS SAVED. You may attempt to resume this virtual machine , but doing so may result in unpredictable behaviour.”
