Unable to install guest OS on VMWare
I have installed and configured vmware workstation on fedora core 3. The guest OS will be windows xp or 2000 pro.
When i powered on vmware, there is this long message. To summarise, it said that the virtual machine has one or more virtual scsi devices installed and winxp doesn't support the buslogic scsi adapter which vmware currently uses for its virtual scsi devices.
It provided a download link to a driver but it didnt say which patch to download.
I clicked ok and the next message appears as:
Unable to open host CD-ROM drive "/dev/cdrom": No such file or directory.
Virtual device ide1:0 will start disconnected.
Then another message appeared saying that no cdrom media was detected.
The hardware configs are:
Harddisk(scsi 0:0) compact
cdrom1(ide 1:0) using /dev/cdrom
floppy1 using /dev/fd0
Hence, vmware starts without a guest OS. So, what is problem here and how do i solve it?
