Trying to build a windows server 2000 VM:

See the attached jpeg.

THese are the windows 2000 source files. I can rightclick and create an ISO. its around 420mb.

I then mount this ISO image from virtual center and it asks for Disk 2. I created another ISO and pointed the image file towards CDBOOT2.IMG (There are 4 CDBOOT IMG files in here). It asks for disk 3 and I do the same using the CDBOOT3.IMG file but nothing happens.

Can someone please explain how to create an ISO for windows server 2000 without the need to ahve 4 disks etc.

Never mind. I had to create 4 ISO images using each of the 4 .IMG files. The reason I wouldnt work on disk 3 is because I didnt have the "Connected" tick box selected within the VM settings. "Connect a power on" was selected but not "Connected"

Scratch that. I am able to get past the "Insert disk 1,2,3,4" phase but then I get this:

BSOD - *** STOP 0X0000007B ... INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

I;ve tried using both BUS and LSI SCSI controllers. Do I need to load a 3rd party driver or something? Any help would be appreciated

Yes, you will need drivers on "Floppy" for those controllers (VMware allows you to use "Floppy Images" for that too). Check the site below for more info (it is for XP but that is the same issue there):

You should be able to download the driver from the LSI site:

A tool you can use to create Floppy images is rawritewin:

I already had the floppy images-  this didnt help. I had to get another 2000 ISO which worked
