Posted by miscblogger at 22:57 GMT on 18 November 2005 I got qemu-img.exe is not a valid win32 app error. In VMware Workstation 2.0, virtual disks could be no larger than 2GB. I ended up create the image using the qemu-img in linux. Posted by Daniel at 14:14 GMT on 17 November 2005 hey thanks man for this great tip!

I then added my pc's ghost image to my ISO image of MiniPE. You can use the CDROM image though. greets, Andras Login to post comments VMWare Server 1.0.1 Submitted by malachid on Tue, 01/23/2007 - 07:12. I went to the correct folder while in "CMD" and in "command" and neither would work.

  • Re-download the file from different sources, same issue.
  • This is done by changing the virtual machine's BIOS.
  • 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....
  • I want to try to install Vista.
  • I tried to boot a CD of Knoppix as well.
  • VMWare seems to accesses my cd/dvd drive as it starts up, so I don't know what is going wrong.
  • I typed ""qemu-img.exe create -f vmdk WindowsXPPro.vmdk 2G"" and then i typed ""qemu-img.exe"" just to see what would happen and the same error code came up.

Since that is the version they are convincing people to use, perhaps the documentation here needs updated or clarified? 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. Posted by Jason at 21:07 GMT on 9 December 2005 (Continues from previous post) I also disabled the cd-rom from my actual OS, and in the VM it said to re-enable Virtual machines with plain disks created in VMware Workstation 2.0 do run under VMware Workstation 3.x.

Posted by at 19:46 GMT on 31 October 2005 Any ideas on installing VMTools in these homemade VMs? and then in the config file change ide0:0.filename = "WindowsXPPro.vmdk to ide0:0.filename = "windows2000pro.vmdk" Anything else? Ok, I found the relevant VMWare support page: Plain Disk VMware Workstation 2.0 offered an experimental disk type called plain disk. If so, how do I specify the folder where I copied Knoppix or another OS?

Should I try to get the VM to look on my actual machine for an OS to install? Login to post comments Navigation Issues bugs & feature requests (old) Create content Reports Recent posts JNode uses Donations User login Username: * Password:

Same problem. Whenever it boots, it gives me a "no bootable cd, floppy...detected." I already put cd-rom at the top of the boot list, saved my changes, and exited. Thanks for posting it. Hi, thanks for the reply.

Posted by Takk at 23:41 GMT on 1 December 2005 Does the virtual CD-ROM point to a real device? have a peek at these guys VMware Workstation 3.x allows you to create large disks - up to 256GB - as virtual disks. Posted by Daniel at 00:55 GMT on 17 November 2005 @ernie: did you check the MD5 sum of qemu-img.exe? The instructions given below are based on a post made by Rhys.

Posted by John at 22:00 GMT on 29 October 2005 Could you elaborate on all the steps needed to install Windows 2000 Pro instead of XP? For example, must the nvram value be changed in the config file? 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 check over here Submitted by pnb on Mon, 03/29/2004 - 18:48.

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. You can edit this in the vmx configuration file. I re-enabled, but it still won't boot to it.

Select the Boot entry, which looks as follows on my machine: VMware Player BIOS Boot menu Hope this helps.

Is there any way? You must have a tool named mkisofs in your path (I think it's a standard tool under Linux). 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 I did the same for a bootable floppy, but got the same error.

It says its not a "valid win32 program" I'm new to this and i probably am doing something wrong. 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, I use Daemon tools, and it found a DT virtual drive as cdrom. http://bovbjerg.net/virtual-machine/virtual-pc-cannot-shutdown-a-locked-virtual-machine.php In there any link where I can find this information?

Maybe we should consider creating a VMDK file for the new spec? Comments This is very informative.

Is this the option to let vmware change memory allocation "on the fly"? Am I correct in assuming that the command for creating the VMware disk will change to: C:\Program Files\Qemu>qemu-img.exe create -f vmdk windows2000pro.vmdk 2G ... Just another questions, does vmware has good 3D support i'd like to run some games but it runs kinda slow. You might want to set the guestOS option to "other24xlinux" for example (2.4.x kernel).

As far as I know plain disks do not work with vmware 4. 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? 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 John Bokma at 23:57 GMT on 1 December 2005 I recently followed your tutorial using QEMU and VMWare player.

Once these step where completed, I booted this image and restored the ghosted image onto this virtual machine. It is unclear to me how important this value actually is. I am running VMWare on gentoo so how do I create the ISO-fiel? Consequently, this version does not support creation of new plain disks.
