Installing Win 7 Enterprise on VMWare Workstation 8

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Not sure how many of you use VMWare Workstation, but I'm having major issues installing windows 7 enterprise on it.

No matter what I choose as the location to get the software from it always tries to PXE boot and install from netwrok (i've attempted to disable this but to no avail)

I've tried from the disk, creating an iso and booting from there booting from a virtual hard disk. I've also changed the boot order to make sure the CD / DVD is first.If I drag said file to the VMWare icon it says it needs to be in VMX format If I change the file to a .vmx it gives an incorrect syntax error.

The media itself seems fine and I dont see a problem with it I dont really want to download Win 7 Enterprise again.

If any of you know how to use it and why its not picking up the iso / disk your help would be apreciated.

Thanks,
Az

Is it legit, or did you download it from a torrent?
