Why can't I setup windows 7 in VMware?

This is using VMware 4.x. Recently, I created a new VM and wanted to setup windows 7 professional 32bit or 64bit, but failed with error message stated that additional driver is not available. I managed to setup RHEL 6.1 vm, windows 2k8 r2 vm, but not this w7. What went wrong?

Try installing it with SCSI driver in vmimages floppy driver.  Never had a problem, but worth a try
