Hi... glad to have stumbled across this great looking forum.
I have a question to ask. I just started using VMWare 4, and am trying to install Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition on a Windows XP machine before an actual installation on a server.
Every time I boot VMWare, it is not detecting my CD ROM. I have a DVD drive, and a CDRW drive. The options for the CD Drive in Vmware is auto-detect, E or F for my system config.
The vmware system continually gives me the error: No bootable CD, floppy or hard disk was detected. To install an operating system, insert a bootable CD or floppy and restart the virtual machine.
During the process, no drive lights are active, and it appears vmware never even attempts to connect to the CD drives.
I've changed the vmware bios to boot from CD first, and it is still not working!!!???
I look forward to some sage advice from the csgal, or anyone who can help. :cheesy:
