I am trying to install CentOS on VMware Workstation 7 on Windows 7. First, Does CentOS 6 run on Workstation 7?
I have a CentOS 6.4 complete DVD I got off eBay. When that didn't work, I downloaded the 7 iso files that (I think) make up the CentOS 5.3 installation (WS 7 advertises as being compatible with CentOS 5.3). Both have the same problem. Taking CentOS 5.3 as the example, it gets to "disk" 4 of 7 then presents the attached image and freezes. A keystroke cursor is shown, but NO KEYSTROKES ARE ACCEPTED. If I try to install VMware tools, it says "VMware Tools installation cannot be started manually while Easy Install is in progress." I am afraid to force a power down because I STILL HAVE 3 INSTALLATION DISKS LEFT. Can you help?
