    Help???


    Hi everyone!! I use VMWare to try out Build 7595 and when I try to set it up it works fine until I get to the page where it asks which OS I would like to install, the space where it should be listed is blank. I'm using a DVD-RW which I burned the download from digitex link. If I skip it I get the cancelled window. I posted the scvreenshots; any ideas as to what's wrong??

    Have you a DVD-R blank disc instead of DVD-RW that you could burn? Or maybe try a 4 gig USB thumb drive.

    Why do you need to burn a DVD when you can install the OS directly from the ISO ?

    ~edit~

    The build number isn't 7595, it's 7955 :ninja:

    Also try Oracle VirtualBox instead of VMWARE

    Well I have the USB drive but it says 4GB and the ISO* file is larger by .32GB don't think it will fit. I'll try VirtualBox and
    see. Also I created a partition for it but wqhen I try to install it says I can't because the partition may be dynamic ...I've tried installing on "unallocated space" and "New Volume" and it's the same thing...I'm stuck. The ISO* file is on my desktop and I waant to install it on my laptop, how would I go about moving it?

    Correct .iso size for Build 7955 should be 2.594gb which is much less than a 4gb flash drive. You may have a corrupted download.

    I just don't get it....with the 7 builds I had no problem at all. This one for some strange reason I can't seem to get going. maybe I'll wait for the Beta builds or the Release Candidate. Another thing I've noticed is the build is only 64 bit so if I get it running I have to use my new laptop cause my desktop is 32 bit. I thought since my CPU is an Athlon 64x2 +3800 that i could switch back and forth between 32 and 64 bit which I guess is impossible.

    Here is a snip of my B-7955. It is x86 (32 bit) ? Not sure what you have.

    @Davy83
    The build is 7955 x86 or 7959 x64 ?
    Anyways, like DocBrown said, your ISO must be corrupted

    ISO Size for build 7959 x64


    Your ISO size seems to be correct and surely fits on a 4GB flashdrive.
