Installing WinXPPro as guest OS on VMware 4.0 on RH 9
I am running RH 9 on an IBM ThinkPad T20
I installed VMwareWorkstation 4.0 and am trying to install WIN XP Pro as a guest OS and the install just doesn't take off.
I pop in the XP install CD and start vmware and turn on the VM. The VM goes through the BIOS setup and then just does nothing.
I also tried reversing the sequence i.e. startup on vmware and turn on the VM and then pop in the XP install disk - same results.
I do have the Phoenix BIOS (in VMware) setup to boot from the CD-ROM.
I also tried creating an ISO image of the XP install disk and tried to install from the ISO image. Still no go !
Can anyone point me in the right direction ?
