When you use Easy Install, you usually do not need to provide information during guest operating system installation.

About this task

If you did not provide all of the Easy Install information in the New Virtual Machine wizard, you might be prompted for a product key, username, or password.

Also, if the guest operating system installation consists of multiple discs or ISO image files, the installer might prompt you for the next disk.

Procedure

  • If the installer prompts you for a product key, username, or password, click in the virtual machine window and type the required information.

    Mouse and keyboard input are captured by the virtual machine.

  • If you are using physical discs and the installer prompts you for the next disk, use the CD-ROM or DVD drive on the host system.
  • If you are using multiple ISO image files and the installer prompts you for the next disk, select the next ISO image file.
