starting your own virtual machine in vmware
 
ok i have tried this before then again then again and still i can't seem to do it. i am trying to install a virtual windows machine so i can just have "fun" (aka kill windows safely on my laptop) with windows. but yeah i have tried to install my own virtual machine and it says that i can only install a pre-made one. so how do i do this

with my psychic hat on, stop using vmware-player and use vmware-server, or download a prebuilt vm from online sources, which i'm not aware of. note that a new virtual machine is *NOT* the same thing as a new installation of windows. you can install windows over an existing vm if you wish.
