VMWare (another question)


thanks for the answer to my question regarding a bridged network

I have Installed Windows 2000 again so I could set up the bridged network. However I have the other Windows 2000 OS already in vmware. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this guest OS while keeping the one I just installed?


Thank you
Scott

I think you'll need to delete the .vmx (not sure if it is an .vmx or .vmw file - the actual iamge of the OS) from your hd, I would tell you more tomorrow if you wish when I get to work, we use VMWare extensively there.

Ok, Vertual_OS.vmx is a config file and Virtual_OS.vmdk is an actual image of the OS. While you were installing a virtual OS VMWare asked you where you want to put virtual machine, so like in my case it was /home/stranger/Windows_XP/, so if you delete these two files - appropriate for each virtual OS you have you should be ok. Good luck.

You don't need to re-install Windows to setup networking. All you need to do add networking for your VMware machine. Then install vmware tools and tell Windows where the vmware drivers are. Windows works the same way in VMware like it does on a real machine.

VMware doesn't recommend installing Windows on a raw partiton if that what is you are doing.

There is also a BIOS file.

After you setup Windows 2000 make a copy of the files, just in case Windows screws up. For me, it always does. If you have setup SAMBA, you can change the location of the special folders to the SAMBA directories.
