install a virtual machine
Posted on 2009-04-16
I have a physical Machine with a static IP address 10.xx.xx.xx/24
I installed vmware server on it and it created two virtual network adapters vmnet1 and vmnet8 and it assigned them through (its DHCP) automatically respectively IPs (192.168.107.1/24, its DHCP=192.168.107.254) and (192.168.60.1 ,its DHCP=192.168.60.254, its Primary WINS=192.168.60.2)
I put the windows 2003 CD in the tray, and now when I restart the virtual machine, I get the first message:
<<Cannot connect virtual device ide1:0. No corresponding device is available on the host.
Would you like an attempt to be made to connect this virtual device every time you power on the virtual machine?>>
I click yes then I get the second message: <<Virtual device ide1:0 will start disconnected.>>
I click OK then it start doing something about DHCP../
then it gives another message <<Virtual device ide1:0 will start disconnected.>>
Any idea on how to fix that and get the OS installed?
