I want to use an old server to do some practice on for certification separate from our business network.  I have a HP proliant server that has VMWARE installed on it.  It is windows 2008 R2 I believe.  I know nothing of
how to get into this server through VMWARE (see screenshot) Can I install an eval copy of windows 2008 R2 (I have a cd with it on) or possibly win server 2012 eval or am I kind of in a bind because VMWARE is installed on the machine?
