I have captured and deployed vm's with LANDesk 9 before. I am using VMware Workstation and i had some similiar hard drive problems at first and I found that even though you specify IDE drives in your configuration that SCSI is still present which was giving me blue screens, errors etc.
I actually had to open the .vmx file in notepad and edit the following line.
By default is says - scsi0.present = "True", i edited it to scsi0.present = "FALSE" and a lot of my hard drive issues went away.
I'm not familiar with VMware Server, but you can check to see if you have the ability to edit the .vmx file and give it a shot.
Turns out the problem for us was related to our virus protection on our Core server. It was blocking the server from building a proper WinPE boot image. This was corrupting the WinPE boot image and causing all of our problems. We are now able to use OSD without any problems. So if anyone else is having similiar problems, check your virus protection.
