I'm wondering if I have the right discs. I see only an upgrade disc and recovery disc. I bought this on ebay. The seller said that install was supposed to support a "demo mode".
I get something like an "iso not found" message from vmware when I try to install.
there is bootable disk or bootable iso image;
is Vmware set to load from DVD -Rom or ISO? ;
you have disks (not iso images) right? so vmware should be set to load from real dvd0rom.
otherwise, load from iso.
i think if dvd disks are not bootable, you should get OS not found error ;
Thanks Martin... Yes, I'm using discs. I tried just now to create a new VM using the recovery DVD-ROM. I get an error message "no valid image found on the hard drive". This message appears after some CIsco install process run.
So I assum this means that I need to boot an OS first. I can creat a VM using an ISO. But how do I get the Cisco install to start if I do this? Is there an executable that I need to run?
Well... it looks like these disks will not do me any good. From what I've read online, neither the upgrade nor the recovery disk can be used for a first install. Lets see what the ebay seller has to say about this.
