I am trying to create vmware image with Windows server 2008 iso file. My vmware workstation is 32 bit (it's installed inside Program Files (x86)).

But, win. server .iso file is 64 bit. Is it possible to create 64 bit image inside 32 bit vmware workstation?

I am receiving an error (at the beggining of the installation): 'A required cd\dvd drive device driver is missing'. Why is that?
