You're getting that because it's an empty VM and you may have tried booting it without seting up access to the ISO. Where is the ISO image?

Stop the VM and make sure that you set the CD/DVD device to access the ISO image under Edit virtual machine settings -> Hardware tab -> CD/DVD drive. Select Connect at power on. Select Use ISO image file, click browse to find the location where you saved the ISO image file, save that and then power on the VM.

As you can see I have found the location.

Also, I have tested the ISO with MagicISO to ensure that it is bootable..

Any other thoughts?

Cheers

Please select the "connect at power on" radio button. In the screenshot it' shows as not selected. It's not finding the device so trying to boot from network.

Let me know if that works.
