Virtual Machine Cannot Be Powered On With An Unconfigured Disk
Is this the option to let vmware change memory allocation "on the fly"? I want to try to install Vista. Start here! For instance, what is MemAllowAutoScaleDown? have a peek at this web-site
C:\Program Files\Qemu>md5sum qemu-img.exe 13eebe802dffee01e49e81f60575e507 *qemu-img.exe @Daniel: if you made a virtual disk (using qemu-img for example) then that's where XP will be installed. I did the same for a bootable floppy, but got the same error. Yeah, it isn't working for VMWare Server either. Posted by Daniel at 14:14 GMT on 17 November 2005 hey thanks man for this great tip!
Plain disks provided a way to create larger disks for the virtual machine.

Comments This is very informative. I did exactly what you documented over the weekend to create a sandbox for application testing, and was pondering posting it somewhere. thanks! I would appreciate any response (except how stupid I am) Posted by ernie at 17:29 GMT on 9 November 2005 I wonder what is the meaning of some of the configuration

This is probably a deliberate limitation of the player. Posted by Usul at 11:35 GMT on 12 November 2005 What about VM Tools ... ?
The only other thing I needed to do was to make sure that the boot sequnce for the virtual machine was set to boot from the CDROM. General discussions Hi there, I tried to mount the all/build/jnodedisk.pln as my Virtual Disk (IDE 0:0) on VMWare 4.0.5 Linux but get: Unable to open either the disk '/home/peter/programs/jnode/all/build/jnodedisk.pln' or the Posted by at 19:46 GMT on 31 October 2005 Any ideas on installing VMTools in these homemade VMs?

Same problem. If you run Ant with the target cdrom, you will have the iso image in path to JNode\all\build\jnode.iso. Posted by John Bokma at 01:25 GMT on 17 November 2005 Ohhh, ok now I get it, that's why we generated a blank 2 GB file with qemu-img, so I guess Ok, I found the relevant VMWare support page: Plain Disk VMware Workstation 2.0 offered an experimental disk type called plain disk.
It doesn t seem to be created by the ant build ... /peter Login to post comments use the target 'cdrom' Submitted by Fabien D on Mon, 03/29/2004 - 19:01.

Once installed, I rebooted the virtual machine, and low and behold, my PC booted into the virtual machine. Posted by Takk at 23:41 GMT on 1 December 2005 Does the virtual CD-ROM point to a real device? If yes, why is it disabled? http://dirsubmit.net/virtual-machine/vmware-cannot-power-on-virtual-machine-too-many-virtual-machines.html Followed instructions to the letter.
What could be wrong? I hope this will help you... You can use the CDROM image though.
You can edit this in the vmx configuration file.
and then in the config file change ide0:0.filename = "WindowsXPPro.vmdk to ide0:0.filename = "windows2000pro.vmdk" Anything else? I ended up create the image using the qemu-img in linux. It says its not a "valid win32 program" I'm new to this and i probably am doing something wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Maybe we should consider creating a VMDK file for the new spec? Posted by John Bokma at 09:31 GMT on 29 October 2005 Any thoughts on how I can get the VM to see my DVD-ROM drive rather than my CD-ROM drive? this is free?!?! http://dirsubmit.net/virtual-machine/virtual-pc-cannot-shut-down-locked-virtual-machine.html What is wrong? /peter ‹ Can't Compile JNode in WinXP with JDK 1.6 VMWare server is also free now › Login to post comments plain disks Submitted by blind on Fri,
Using the guide I created an 8 gig virtual drive. Posted by Jason at 21:27 GMT on 9 December 2005 Jason, read the post by Nils Green, a bit more up. Then in the .vmx file created, I changed the following entries: ide1:0.fileName = "auto detect" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw" to read ide1:0.fileName = "c:\minipe.iso" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image" This would allow the virtual Start the virtual machine, press Ctrl+G (it now accepts input), press F2 and you should end up in the BIOS.
Posted by rich at 13:34 GMT on 29 October 2005 Very good example. I can send screenshots. Posted by Elyseo Mesquita at 21:23 GMT on 12 November 2005 I sucessfully load Windows XP installer, within vmware player, thanks to this tutorial here, i just have one question I man i tried it with my windows 98 CD and it worked like a charm!
You might want to set the guestOS option to "other24xlinux" for example (2.4.x kernel). ide1:0.fileName = "auto detect" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw" If it still doesn't boot from CD-ROM, but it recognizes the drive once the virtual machine starts it might be that you have to Posted by magnus at 22:20 GMT on 29 October 2005 For Windows 2000 Professional: # name of the virtual disk ide0:0.filename = "windows2000pro.vmdk" # title to be displayed in the VMware here you go :) Cheers Posted by Egee_guy at 22:46 GMT on 2 November 2005 Hey I just thought I pass along something I did today.
Posted by TRW at 22:11 GMT on 29 October 2005 Everything worked great. Posted by Daniel at 00:55 GMT on 17 November 2005 @ernie: did you check the MD5 sum of qemu-img.exe? I've invalidate drives in DT (set number of devices : disabled) and I launched again vmware, and it detects one of my hardware cdrom, and accept to boot from it....
