Hi there

As previously specified you can't install using the vmware wizard -- or at least using the product key supplied by MS -- it's invalid -- use the number given by Vrosa in this thread.

however if you create the VM manually remember to set the Boot from BIOS the ist time and set the vm to boot from the virtual (or real ISO if you are using a physical DVD)

This will allow you to change to boot order of devices for the VM at boot.

(Change it back again afterwards or you'ii get the install screen again and again).

Cheers
jimbo

Are we talking about VMware WorkStation ? if so, I choose the option " Install an OS later" and at the end I click on "Customize Hardware", and select the iso , and when I power the VM, it install perfectly

hi there
as vrosa says thats fine
my post referred to possible problems if you used the "Create Virtual Machine Wizard" rather than choose "Install OS later".
