Has anyone seen this before? I'm trying to install Windows 3.1 guest. After getting through the first 2 disks, the setup starts windows 3.1 it is at the initial screen that both the guest and host OS freeze and the computer reboots. Windows' event viewer does not show anything of interest except for Kernel power compaining the compuer was not shut down correctly.
Here are my vitals:
Workstation version: 7.1.3 build-324285
Windows: Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit (Build 7600) 6.1.7600
Any insight would be appreciated.
I've never seen that before. Do the VMware logs mention anything? They would be in the same folder as the VM being installed.
If possible, trying installing the VM on another computer, VMware Player can be used, and see if the same results occur. If so, then something may be wrong with the istallation media. If not, then copy the VM to a USB drive and see if it works on the Win 7 machine.
> Why does there's always a problem with Windows 7 ...
probabbly because Windows 7 is the most used platform these days ?
If you want flawless operation of Workstation use XP or 2003 rather than Vista
