Sorry, not seeing the problem. That picture indicates you have to press enter, or somehow select "Install Ubuntu", before it continues/does anything.

Are you doing that?? If so, what does it do? Or are you saying it locks up and won't LET you select it?? Are you getting any errors on the VMware console? Have you tried booting with "noacpi"?

I have never done it on Vmware workstation. Can you create a VM in vmware workstation or do you have to have vmware server to create a vm? I thought workstation was only to use existing VMs similar to what vmware player does.

On a side note, I have installed the same version of ubuntu in Vmware Server 2 just fine.

Since you don't have any virtual machines yet have you tried reinstalling vmware workstation to make sure nothing is corrupt?

Try to run Ubuntu on the LiveCD, then click the install shortcut on the desktop.
