Documentation looks okay, as -I <installer-image> is documented during
the install stage, and is not supposed to be needed during
normal operation.

The quoted error message from vmrun.sh happens when it thinks you
need to install on the given filesystem image
(if [ $force_install -eq 1 -o $need_install -eq 1 ];)
so it might be worth checking that your guest.img contains a valid
FFS filesystem on it.  (Hmm, maybe you used ZFS and vmrun.sh isn't
prepared to handle that?)
