you need to click the "connected" and "connect at power on" in the right top corner in order to make the iso to mount properly.
After you click "connect at power on", reboot the VM and it should boot from the iso.
Thank you so much, it's working fine now.

You should see something like this when opening virtual machine settings:
(select CD\DVD drive and in the top right corner you have the options you are looking for)--

I have tick the checkbox "Connect at power on" but the checkbox "Connected" is disabled.
But window cannot start and the machine is going to boot fron network.
Please suggest some help...
Tick box "Connected" is grayed out if the VM is powered off.
So this is normal.
Please check vGeek: VM settings: CD/DVD drive
Try the workaround described in "How to configure "Client Device"
So connect the ISO from the Console Window's icon bar.
And set the boot delay to for example 10 seconds seeing what exactly the VM is doing with the attached ISO.
Go into the BIOS inside the VM and check the boot order there (like on a physical machine).
Make sure the CD/DVD is on top.
Thanks you for your reply.
But there is no option for BIOS setting in VMware. I have Vmware version 11. Please suggest some help.
hi. i am beginner and facing same problem "operating system not found"
but, button "connected" and "connect at power on" in the right top corner are disable..
any solution plz
Use the CD/DVD menu.
Select the image using the file chooser.
Then mount the CD/DVD drive.
I spent too long figuring this out; i.e. the interface is non-intuitive and/or the error message is not specific/clear enough.
I'm new for VM using.
While I try to install a new machine for Microsoft windows XP.
There is error when I power on the new machine.
The error message is as attached file.
Please help. Thank you.

Just creating the VM doesn't install the operating system. You need to mount a CD/DVD/ISO with the windows XP installable on it and run the normal install routine.
Thanks alot that Helped for me!
