If you have tried installing Windows XP Embedded on a VMWare Workstation Virtual Machine, you know by now the process can be very frustrating.  Getting the hardware setup just right in Windows Embedded is extremely tricky and takes a lot of trial and error.  Build machine, boot, blue screen, rebuild, boot, blue screen, repeat.

This Windows XP Embedded user has provided a sld component file that will load all of the necessary drivers for Windows XP Embedded.  You will need to be using VMWare Workstation version 6.0 in order for this to work.  If you are using VMWare Workstation version 6.5, this component file will not work.

I know this saved me hours of trial and error.
