I have just downloaded ubuntu 13.04, and am attempting to run it from vmware player 6. I have previously successfully run ubuntu 10.10 on vmware player 6.
My laptop OS is vista.
If I select create a new virtual machine, and select the iso-file, there is an error which says:
# Could not detect which operating system is in this disc image. # You will need to specify which operating system will be installed", but it is added to the menu when I select "Linux" as the OS type.
Now this what happens when I try to launch 13.04 from the vmware player:
I see ubuntu 13.04 listed on the menu to play in vmware. When I play it, a window appears which says:
# Network boot from AMD Am79C970A # Copyright (C) 2003-2008 VMware, Inc. # Copyright (C) 1997-2008 Intel Corporation # CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 0C 29 4C 24 2E GUID: 564DB112-F848-1088-3CB7-956F2C4C242E # PXE-E53: No boot filename received # PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. # Operating System Not Found
And there is a message bar at the bottom of vmplayer which says:
# Ubuntu is not installed on this virtual machine. Insert the installer disc and click "Restart VM""
Is this only a problem with 13.04? (It takes me a long time to download.) I would really appreciate if someone please help me to get it running!
