I just installed VMWare on Server 2003 x64. I thought I have done this before but after installing on new machine I am not sure if x64 Windows 2003 is compatible with VMWare.
I can runn VMs but after I create the basic machine and go to install the OS such as XP it bypasses the cdrom and tries to start up with DHCP. This obviously comes to a failure since there is no preboot nic.
Attached is a pic of what it is doing. I have seen this before and got an answer long time ago but cannot find the answer thru search or thru the settings.
