I have installed VMware Fusion on Mac Book Air in order to install windows 7.
I went through the install wizard and selected windows 7 and it installed VM for windows 7.
later I got windows iso image on a flsh drive, I plugged to Mac Book, I ran VMware-fusion (windows 7), but I cannot see where to select windows 7 iso from within Virtual machine that has been created by VM Fusion.

I tried to unistall vmware application by dragging it to the Trash bin, and started from scrath to install vmware fusion, so that it will run the wizard and will give me the options to select the OS I want to install and the location of the file (win7 iso), but the wizard did not go through the same options s the first time..it just open the VM just like I did not uninstall.
 I would like someone to help to get windows 7 iso installed on Mac book (OS x Mountain Lion) using VMware fusion.

Thank you.
