STOP 0x0000007B on P2V'd Windows 7  
Just P2V Win7? Only one problem! You'll get a STOP 0x0000007B on boot. With automatic reboot on error enabled, it also manifests itself as a Windows Boot Manager error, Status: 0xc0000225, Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

For days I played with DiskPart and BCDEdit.
Then I found:

This gave me a direction, but didn't solve my issue. Playing with additional services I came up with the final steps here:

1.Mount the Win7 DVD in VMware Player and boot to it.
2.At the first screen (Language Selection), hit Shift-F10 for a command prompt.
3.Run Regedit.
4.Load the system hive from the VM's disk:

2.File > Load Hive
3.Select < c: > \Windows\System32\config\system
4.Regedit will ask for a Key name: Name it something like "asdf"
5.Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\asdf\ControlSet001\Services\intelide
6.Change the data for value "Start" from "3" to "0".
6a.Also repeat for: HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet001/Services/ and edit the "Start" parameter to the corresponding value from the list:

Aliide = 3
Amdide =3
Atapi = 0
Cmdide = 3
iaStorV = 3
intelide = 0
msahci = 3
pciide = 3
viaide = 3
7.File > Unload Hive.
8.Exit regedit.
9.Reboot the VM.

Voila! Hear the angles sing!

just swaped mainboards and got 0x0000007B. installing from scratch would took me two days at least. SO many things to install and configure...
Thanks for the share. Worked great.

You have a non-default install folder?

Thank you!
This was the medicine I needed. There are many references to first part of the solution (setting "intelide" start to 0). However, that did not work -- by itself, that is. A problem that appeared impossible to solve has been solved thanks to the guidance offered here. Thanks for sparing from having to "play with DiskPart and BCDEdit for days". Now I can get back to doing real work!
All the best

Thankyou, you are brilliant
These clear instructions helped me understand and fix a longstanding problem I have had with P2V-ing. You have saved me many hours. Thankyou!
