What errors are you facing? You should take care to match the kernel version of the VM and the distro.


#5

Are you installing it on vmware server?

And what host os are you using? win, mac, linux?

@ Asad

Actually I download the ISO of Fedora 9 from Fedora's website and it might be corrupt as VMware shows no boot device.

@ nabeelimran

I am using VMware workstation 6.5 on Win XP.

I bought a DVD of Fedora 8 from market today and going to test it today on VMware let see it is gona work for me now or not :)

^ Try checking the hash for the ISO file you downloaded. This will verify if the image file is corrupt or not.

Best of Luck
