I cannot boot the virtual machine. When I right clicked the "connect" at the "new virtual machine", i got error message. Please see the attachment. I tried many times to change the order of boot. but it still cannot work. The Windows 2008 and Windows 7 are 64 bits. Anyone can give me some suggestion ? Thank you !

    you would troubleshoot this exactly the same way you would troubleshoot a physical machine.

    Boot from a Boot Disk and fix the problem .. did you install an operating system on this virtual machine?

    Leaving the name at New Virtual Machine is a prescription for problems down the road.

    Now, it is working. but i cannot remember what i did that i made it work. i do not know what resulted in that boot failure. it's strange.

    Thank you,  ve3ofa. it's your suggestion that made me confidence to do that.
