i'm running vmware server v 1.0.3 on Centos 5 AMD64.
I've created several Virtual Machines using different guest OSes like FC6, Ubuntu 7.04, Centos 5 and so on. they all run without any problems.
when i try to install fc7 as a guest it cannot find the (virtual) harddrive on which to install. The VM i created is created in exactly the same way as the other machines. i can even take this machine and install ubuntu, fc6 or what ever you ask me to install. But when i try FC7 it fails.
I can boot from the boot.iso image, i enter network info, nfs server info and voila - anaconda starts as it's supposed to. I see the welcome screen presenting the new FC7 theme and the next screen is the disk partitioning screen. But the 'available discs' box is empty. I would have expected the virtual disc to show up here but i don't see anything.
I have tried the 32 bit as well as the 64 bit version but there's no difference, so i'm pretty much stock her.
I wonder if it's feasible to install FC6 and afterwards upgrade it to FC7 over the net. is it possible and if yes -HOW? YUM upgrade all? or what.
thanks for any help.
