    Can not install any Linux OS in VMware 14 Player with host OS Windows 10 Home ver. 1809

      Can not install any Linux OS in VMware 14 Player with host OS Windows 10 Home ver. 1809.
      It might be the problem I have to install VMware tools. It is far more complex in linux with hints to
      mount a  virtual CD player and open a terminal and add something for VMware tools.pl.
      In the other OS istallations like Win XP, Win 7 and win 10 Pro it is a very simple thing to install
      VMware tools from the bottom line and they all work nicely with sound and external connection.

       

      Perhaps it is a completly different fault, but I have always the CD symbol "Install Linux".
      I can open Firefox but not use it on line. I am not asked to enter the pesonal details.
      There is no sound available.

       

      I would be very happy if this annoying foult can be fixed, since all other OS work so perfect in my VMware 14 player.

          Hello everybody

           

          Now I solved the problem by myself.

           

          The reason to my problem was that I have installed a new Solid State Drive from Samsung with 500 GB storage. This drive operate more than 10 times faster and by this reason I wanted to use that drive for my Virtual OS in VMware 14 Player as well for increased speed.

           

          By mistake the Linux.ISO and the vitual machines landed in the very same map. And the Linux CD ISO was not possible to write any installation files into it.

          Now I created a map called Linux into the SSD C: disk vhere the linux.ISO file is stored. The linux istallation was addressed to the virtual machines map where I have the other virtual OS stored.

           

          By this fix it was no problem with installation.

           

          This case is now solved. It can be left for other to get help from for some time.
