    Step two
    [​IMG]
    browse the location of the Iso file you downloaded, Dont worry Vmware will say it cannot find a OS thats fine just click I will install OS later

    Step Three
    [​IMG]
    Select windows from the OS choice And Please make sure it set to Windows XP or else it may not work

    Step Four
    [​IMG]
    Name your OS so it would be Windows 8

    Step 5
    [​IMG]
    Set the OS HD space it will say 60GB but thats way to much i set mine to 20GB

    Step 6
    [​IMG]
    Configure the amount of RAM network ect. this is up to you just make sure its above 1GB of ram

    Finally Power on the machine and There you have it!

    Ah, okay, well okay I will try that because the difference I have is that I am using VMware 7. something and I have to update and a question what version did you get 32 bit or 64 bit?

    Well 32bit. But it dosen't really matter tbh It should work the same, and it should work on vm7 as there is no major difference apart from GUI :)

    Hmm, okay. Well I have to look into it because it does not work for me. might be because I am picking the iso first.

    Ahh, okay. That is what I probably did wrong. Will try it again when I get home from TAFE.
