Nevermind, I got another SATA drive with Ubuntu installed (I did several
tests) and It worked out of the box. Maybe the other install got corrupted.
Anyway, I have forced Ubuntu to boot on text mode but when vmware server
service starts, it changes the mode from text to GUI mode, changing the
resolution to an unreadable resolution (very tiny letters).
There is no way to run vmware service in text mode?
