3… Does that answer your question? – cpu2 Dec 30 '12 at 19:53

I just had the same issue with Worksattion 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.

I tried the suggested solutions, however they did not work.

What worked for me was Creating the VM first by choosing the option "I will install the OS later"

then mount the iso on the CDROM through the settings window and boot it up.

Worked 1st time.

also once its finished copying the files disconnect the cd rom at reboot

12.04 Stuck at 'VMware easy install'
