Basic Steps to Install a Guest Operating System

Installing a guest operating system inside your VMware Workstation virtual machine is essentially the same as installing it on a physical computer. The basic steps for a typical operating system are:

  1. Start VMware Workstation.

  2. Insert the installation CD-ROM or floppy disk for your guest operating system.

  3. Power on your virtual machine - click the Power On button.

  4. Follow the instructions provided by the operating system vendor.
