VMWare Workstation 10 - Not Finding CD - PowerEdge R710
Posted on 2014-12-07
Have Dell PowerEdge R710 w/PERC 6i
Running Windows Server 2012 R2 w/All Available Updates
Running VMWare Workstation 10
DVD/CD is working correctly
Trying to create new guest VM in VMWare Workstation 10
Put Win Svr 2012 in DVD Drive
Create New Machine
Enter License Code & User Account/Password
Starts... Cannot find boot disk, tries to boot off the network card using PXE
What I have done so far...
Edited VMX file to add some delay to the boot screen so I can choose options if needed.
Tried various selections in the Settings=>CD=> (SATA, SCSI, IDE) of the guest... NO JOY.
I am guessing that I am just not specifying the correct settings for the DVD/CD, or I am missing something else?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
