Installing Windows 7 on VMWare Fusion

As per my previous post I was faced with a serious BSOD problem.

Now this is corrected and so you do not face the same problem here are my findings

  • VMWare identifies the ISO file as Vista
  • w7_1
  • The ‘optional’ admin password doesn’t seem to be optional! Enter this to avoid BSOD later.
  • w7_2
  • On file sharing I chose NONE
  • w7_3
  • Customize your settings!
  • NOTE: Set the hard disk type to IDE and NOT SCSI
  • w7_4
  • Enjoy
