Well 2008 enterprise is not for normal use. It will be very difficult to get it to work properly. Take a look here.
A little more information that might help.
Windows 7 Enterprise
This edition targets the enterprise segment of the market and is sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface (MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEM channels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs), the running of multiple virtual machines, and activation via VLK

This sounds to me like you're unsure if VMWare is going to support that operating system? All features included in the distribution will be available in the virtual environment if configured correctly. If you need further guidance I'm sure you'll be able to let us know
