i'm trying to test out my unattended cd with vmware and it isn't detecting any hard drives. i set up a 4gb hard drive just like it said in the guide. windows setup says it can't find any hard drives and my only option is to exit setup.

please help.

Are you trying to install WinXP on a virtual machine expected to run Win2000?

That can produce that error.

What I had to do was to delete that VM and create a new one,

changing the guest operating system to WinXP (Win2000 is the default).

i have both of those things going on...

why does the guide say to pick win2k if it won't work?

also, the virtual disk is a scsi disk. i checked the options, and i do not have an option to make it an ide disk. anyone know why?

ok, i removed my scsi virtual disk, made a new one as an ide and everything is fine now. i just never saw the option to make scsi or ide when i first setup the virtual machine.

thanks for the help everyone!
