  • "Operating system not found" is the only message? Or does it include more lines above it? – Rinzwind Aug 18 '15 at 7:57

An error sign shows up: Could not detect which operating system is in the disc image. You will need to specify which operating system later.

Is NOT an error. It's just a warning.

Regarding the:

Operating system not found

is almost always a wrongly configured VMWare. You will probably get better response on the VMWare website. A quick search shouws this with the same notice ("Operating system not found") and has a solution "you need to click the "connected" and "connect at power on" in the right top corner in order to make the iso to mount properly." That topic also points to vGeek on how to set up VMWare.
