I downloaded Windows 2012 server ISO evaluation and I tried installing it on VMware work station by mapping the ISO from the download location ,but I could not succeed and I got the following error:
A media driver you computer needs is mission. This could be a DVD, USB or Hard disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now.
Not: If the installation media for windows is in the DVD drive or on a USB drive, you can safely remove it for this step.
Then I copied it to a USB 2.0 and then re-installed by mapping from the ISO from USB2.0. This time my installation succeeds.
My query is why I am unable to install Windows server 2012 as the ISO are same and more over before it throws the error it detects CD drive and then throws error for drivers.
Can someone help me to understand this strange behavior and how to get rid of it when I am installing windows server 2012 from downloaded ISO?
