I downloaded an ISO file into my datastore to install WIndows on my newly created VM

I then went to the following path:

VM->Edit Settings->CD ROM->DataSore ISO File

Open in new window


I Click on checkbox to load from CD on reboot

I select the Browse option and enter the file on the datasore

[datastore1] CLIENT_6/en_windows_7_enterprise_x64_dvd_x15-70749.iso

Open in new window


But when I hit OK, I get the following error:

File <unspecifiedfilename> was not found

Open in new window


what should I do to fix this ?

Try uploading the ISO again.  It might be corrupt.
