3 Virtual HW upgrade to v12
source | link

I'm running VMWare Workstation 12.1.1 Pro under Windows 10, with a guest Linux Mint 17.2 with virtual hardware version 11.

My only current disk is a virtual SATA.

When I add a virtual SCSI device at 0:0, (creating a new 0.4GB disk as a test) I'm getting the error shown below.

I re-installed vmware-tools after creating the SCSI disk. No change. I also tried upgrading the virtual hardware to version 12.

What am I missing?
