How did you connect the iso? I typically power the VM on and then use the connect CDROM icon and point to the data store where the iso is located. Then reboot the guest.

I think that is normal behaviour.

Andrew,

The ISO is stored in the following path.

[] /vmfs/volumes/545567d9-739b0d5a-4d3b-0026b94d5743/Win7ISO/win7iso.iso

Andrew,

The strange thing when I try to locate the path above I can't find the ISO win7iso.iso

try renaming the ISO, something simple, like win7.iso

if the iso does not exist you cannot expect it to BOOT!

If the iso, is not connected, it will not BOOT from the CDROM (iso).

correct.  it is normal behaviour to not boot from the CD if that 'connected' box is not selected
check that box and restart the guest
