You still have autoinst.iso connected ...
Try to install your guest normally without using Autoinstall.
Can you run any VM ?
Did you successfully compile all modules ?
Can you start a VM while running as root ?
> thanks, but I still get the same error.
show new logfile.
Dont use any fancy video settings - just regular VMware SVGA
Then simply fix your current VM. It is still in Autoinstall mode and probably tries to boot from iso.
did you install vmware-tools ? - if not - do that now.
I’ve reported your original thread for a second time, since you didn’t wait for a moderator to move it and just created this duplicate anyway.
I have also reported this thread since it is still not in the area for Workstation.
thanks, made some progress but have another issue.
I tried to install ubuntu and it failed and had to restart the VM.
Now I'm blocked because it asks me to remove the installation medium CD in order to continue....but I can't do that, because I can't edit the VM and the power off button is grayed out......I'm pretty much stuck.
