I use FreeBSD in the same way as you... never have tried to do what you want,
but I remember (not 100% sure) that when you create the new virtual machine
it tells you that will use:
IDE Adapter: ATAPI
SCSI Adapter: BusLogic /LSI Logic
I guess it uses *both* interfaces although you only use an IDE
virtual/physical disk/partition and the kernel tries to access it... it is
like if you have a SCSI card without a CDROM/HDD connected to???
It does not let you choose to use or not SCSI, just select the type... I think
the goal could be to *disable* the SCSI support on the virtual machine, not
to configure the freebsd... The best option could be contact VMware tech
support or forums to ask how to disable SCSI...
