    Hello All,
    I am a first time user of virtualization and installed VMware server 2.0 for the first time. The setup I am using is as follows
    Host OS – Vista Home Premium (Ex. LT1)
    VMware Server is installed on LT1
    I have created a virtual PC (VPC1) on my external HDD (Ex. EHD1)

    When I start the console and Power On my VPC1 for the very first time, all I get is a black screen with 2 tabs on top.. Under Devices I see that my CD/DVD drive is connected to Server but Windows 7 installer doesn’t start at all.

    My CD/DVD is added as IDE.

    Then, I tried to install guest OS (Win 7) using ISO, but the same result. I see the ISO file name under Devices but my VPC1 just doesn’t boot.

    Just as a precaution (not sure if its needed) but I do PowerOn and Power Off after changing configuration to make sure my changes are detected.

    Will someone help me resolve this?

    Please let me know if you need any further information.
