I'm trying to create a VM machine server 08.  I have a 16 gig ram machine with plenty of hard drive space. I've uploaded my ISO to the datastore  but when I try to start the server installation it says server not found  I think this is my issue there's  a folder in my Datastore called .sdd.sf and when I create a virual machine it's not letting me choose that folder for the ISO - see attached.

On the VM you want to install or use the ISO on just right-click and choose Edit settings > Hardware Tab > CD/DVD drive >  Device Type: Datastore ISO File > Browse to the ISO.

Also make sure to verify above in the device status to make sure connect at power on is set.

It's not giving me that option when I create a new virual machine.
See attached..  I'm using an ISO I downloaded from Microsoft's site we have a license for that.

OK I will try again.  I just checked my image to be sure and it is 100% bootable according to magic ISO
