creating New VM from an iso image in the Network
I have an iso image of windows 7, I am using Vmware fusion , so I have Vsphere client an ESX server, no shared storage. I have installed VM machine but not associated to iso image.

Now when I edit settings , select CD/DVD and try to browse to the iso image which is windows host , it does not give me the option to browse to it, all it does it browses to the local datastore of the ESX server.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

If you have the ISO image on your Windows Computer, after powering on the VM, Open a Console Window, and Select the Connect/Disconnect CDROM with Spanner ICON, and then connect to ISO Image on Local Disk.

CLICK ICON
and make sure that CD-ROM/DVD-ROM is set to Client Device.

client cdrom
