Install SBS2011 on VMWare 4

I am trying to install SBS2011 on to VMware 4 server. I have created the virtual machine and have setup cd drive to connect on power on but machine won't boot from disk to enable installation. Have checked the disc with magic iso and it is bootable, so I don't know what to do from here..
Any help would be appreciated.

That version dates from before Server 2011. Are you sure it is supported? What about using a newer version of VMware?

John,
Thanks for your reply, I was just about to post that I had worked it out. I uploaded the image to the datastore and it booted up beautifully.

Thank anyway.

If this is VMware vSphere 4,x, this is old legacy, and end of life. You would be better using a currently supported product eg. 5.5 or 6.0.

I did suggest earlier that this was legacy software as well.

Sorry John, I meant to share the solution but was unsure of how to do it.
