I am attempting to install CUCM 7.1 on a vm. So steps I took are

1) Create a vm host using Redhat 3 enterprise 32bit
2) Choose to boot host from iso
3) Host boots up and never chooses to boot from ISO it actually just goes to :

   Network Boot from AMD

PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Operating System not found

4) I checked ROM boot order and it goes from HD to CDROM to Network Boot last

Have you checked "Connected" and "Connect at Power on" in the VM's CD settings?

I don't understand a "vm host". A virtual machine is not a host and host is not a virtual machine. What is not booting? The host (physical) machine? or the virtual machine? ... Thinkpads_User

I meant VM so I am attempting to install a vm on a host. I did check "connect at power on" and it still goes to the Network boot.

Apart from that, what Virtualization software are you using?

You need to go into the Virttual Machine BIOS by Press F2, and change the Boot Options to CDROM.

If you set Connect at Power on and then the under the CD setting you need to select ISO and not Physical Drive (at least for VMware Workstation). Are you sure your ISO is good (bootable)?  ... Thinkpads_User

If it is falling through to PXE it sounds like maybe you are not getting your iso mounted in time. If this is on a vSphere ESX(i) platform and you are trying to mount the iso from your workstation through the client this can sometimes take a minute. Your best bet is to open the vm console and with the vm powered down:

1. Click the green power on arrow
2. As soon as you see the splash screen click in the vm window (to make it active) then press the ESC key
3. Press Ctrl-Alt together to free up your mouse
4. Click the CD button and mount your iso
5. Click back in the vm window, use the up/down arrows to hilight the CD drive
6. Press Enter

Assuming you have a good iso it should boot right up

Bad CD-Rom drive. Sorry for hassle. Thanks for prompt responses. Thought it was a vmware issue
