Henkes Posted August 13, 2007 Share Posted August 13, 2007 First of all, here's my first post official post on this forum... whoohoo...For the past 2 hours i've been struggling with a unattended win2k3 installation on a VMWare ESX 2.x serverWhen I ran the unattended installation i got a 0x7b blue screen.So for all you people who are having the same problem, here is my solution:1. Copy vmscsi.sys (from the vmware tools iso) to your i386 (source) directory2. Edit the i386\TXTSETUP.SIF to contain:[sourceDisksFiles]vmscsi.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4[HardwareIdsDatabase]PCI\VEN_104B&DEV_1040 = "VMscsi"[sCSI.Load]VMscsi = vmscsi.sys,4[sCSI]VMscsi = "VMware SCSI Controller"3. Edit i386\DOSNET.INF to contain:[FloppyFiles.2]d1,vmscsi.sys[Files]d1,vmscsi.sysThis should solve the problem of the Text-based portion of setup not being able to see your hard drive.
