Hello

I tryed to install iAtkos 5i, but the installation stucks after the apple logo, it's showing the wallpaper and a spinning rainbow ball-thingy (not frozen). After a restart, showing my DHCP and MAC address, and my Virtual PC trying to do a network boot. I deleted the Vmware image, and made a new one, still trying to do a network boot. :)

How do I fix this? I don't want to use native install, because I just want to try it out, also, I just have 50 Gb free space on my HDD.

 

My PC config is:

ASUS P5P800

Intel P4 3.00 Ghz

SATA HDD

ASUS N7600GS Silent

Sound card is integrated.

 

I set the Virtual PC to this:

HDD: IDE, 15 Gb

CD/DVD: IDE, Daemon tools drive (mounted)

Network: NAT

Floppy: Disabled

 

BIOS settings:

Legacy Diskettes disabled,

Serial ports and others disabled,

Boot from DVD

 

Thanks in advance!

it's look like that vmware guest cannot find the cdrom / dvd image.

 

I have found this condition severel times on my experiment, and what i did : power down the guest OS and then after a while restart again, the guest os will boot as what expected ( boot with the ISO cdrom image)
