The only other thing I needed to do was to make sure that the boot sequnce for the virtual machine was set to boot from the CDROM. Is this the option to let vmware change memory allocation "on the fly"? It doesn t seem to be created by the ant build ... /peter Login to post comments use the target 'cdrom' Submitted by Fabien D on Mon, 03/29/2004 - 19:01. I then added my pc's ghost image to my ISO image of MiniPE.
I use Daemon tools, and it found a DT virtual drive as cdrom. Start the virtual machine, press Ctrl+G (it now accepts input), press F2 and you should end up in the BIOS. Once installed, I rebooted the virtual machine, and low and behold, my PC booted into the virtual machine. I hope this will help you...
Followed instructions to the letter. here you go :) Cheers Posted by Egee_guy at 22:46 GMT on 2 November 2005 Hey I just thought I pass along something I did today. Login to post comments CDROM image - how? Posted by John Bokma at 09:31 GMT on 29 October 2005 Any thoughts on how I can get the VM to see my DVD-ROM drive rather than my CD-ROM drive?
What could be wrong? This is probably a deliberate limitation of the player. It is because vmware don't find the right cdrom when it starts. Re-download the file from different sources, same issue.

Posted by Jason at 21:07 GMT on 9 December 2005 (Continues from previous post) I also disabled the cd-rom from my actual OS, and in the VM it said to re-enable Posted by at 19:46 GMT on 31 October 2005 Any ideas on installing VMTools in these homemade VMs?
Start here! I have the VM up, and it starts to boot, but I am unable to install WinXP on the VM. The only question I have is should I activate this copy of XP Pro or will that cause me problems with MS. It says its not a "valid win32 program" I'm new to this and i probably am doing something wrong.

Posted by miscblogger at 22:57 GMT on 18 November 2005 I got qemu-img.exe is not a valid win32 app error. Not working for me. :( Posted by xb at 23:46 GMT on 30 October 2005 This shows I should be checking digg.com more frequently. Posted by John Bokma at 23:57 GMT on 1 December 2005 I recently followed your tutorial using QEMU and VMWare player. his comment is here Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The instructions given below are based on a post made by Rhys. Hi, thanks for the reply. For instance, what is MemAllowAutoScaleDown?
Am I correct in assuming that the command for creating the VMware disk will change to: C:\Program Files\Qemu>qemu-img.exe create -f vmdk windows2000pro.vmdk 2G ...
You can use the CDROM image though.
Ok, I found the relevant VMWare support page: Plain Disk VMware Workstation 2.0 offered an experimental disk type called plain disk.
In there any link where I can find this information?
Maybe we should consider creating a VMDK file for the new spec?
Posted by Sliddal at 06:52 GMT on 28 October 2005 Is there a switch to make it boot and then run a linux distro CD instead? -Daniel Posted by Daniel Lichterman
In VMware Workstation 2.0, virtual disks could be no larger than 2GB.
If yes, why is it disabled?
VMWare seems to accesses my cd/dvd drive as it starts up, so I don't know what is going wrong.

Thanks for everything i successfully installed WXP and now running perfectly. C:\Program Files\Qemu>md5sum qemu-img.exe 13eebe802dffee01e49e81f60575e507 *qemu-img.exe @Daniel: if you made a virtual disk (using qemu-img for example) then that's where XP will be installed. Plain disks provided a way to create larger disks for the virtual machine. Is there any way?
