VMware Virtual Machine Loading Issue

Posted on 2014-11-02
Last Modified: 2014-11-04
Hello Experts,

I have configured a VM using Nexus emulator image Titanium.

I have reached the stage shown in  image6. However, what is now required is for me to:

'Connect to the VM from the console connection previous created during the VM installation procedure to manually load the system image'

After that I should be presented with image7.

The problem is I'm not sure what 'Connect to the VM from the console connection previous created during the VM installation procedure to manually load the system image' means

Any help would be great
