What to do next

Before you can use the new virtual machine, you must partition and format the virtual drive, install a guest operating system, and install VMware Tools. Typically, the operating system's installation application handles partitioning and formatting the virtual drive.

You can map the virtual machine's CDROM/DVD to an ISO file and start the virtual machine. This action triggers the operating system install.
