Unfortunately, Studio 2.1 currently supports only one iso.
But I have one suggestion.
1. Using WinRAR extract the ISO file-1 in folder1
2. Using WinRAR extract the ISO file-2 in folder2
3. Copy contents from folder2 to folder1 \[overwrite the files and folder]
4. Create ISO file from this folder1. Following are some links for reference.
5. Check the md5sum for this newly created ISO and update it in build profile.
6. Build the VA.
I'm not sure if this workaround will truly solve the problem ( I don't know how intelligent the M$ installer is)
Nevertheless - if it works - this workaround is not a good thing so far so I added it to the FR thread (http://communities.vmware.com/message/1591919#1591919) as FR# 021.
@laxmanp: is this OK for you and what priority has this issue for you (P1....P4 where P1 is the highest prio)?
As I mentioned before, after combining two ISO's in one folder you can create bootable ISO using Nero. Please refer the following link for the same.
I am able to create the bootable ISO with two different ISO's and able to install Win2k3_ServerEnterpriseR2 OS manually.
Also please refer this http://communities.vmware.com/message/1429973#1429973 thread, because I have observed that in first boot of Win2k3+R2 OS, setup is redirected to some security patch and which requires manual intervention for pressing next button. So "start /wait notepad" trick will solve your problem in VA building using VMware Studio.
Did this method work. I am also planning to create a Win 23K VM, but am facing the same problem with multiple ISO files.
I gave up on it....but maybe its still worth a try....
