VMware Fusion issue when installing Windows 7 Pro on MacOSX

By September 21, 2010 No Comments

I have recently been through a journey of optimization for running Windows 7 on the Macbook Pro (running Mac OSX Snow Leopard) and in the process of trying all my options I ran into a rather strange error. When installing Windows 7 Pro (x64) on VMWare Fusion, using as an input the isolated disk image and inputting the correct product key, I received the following error message:

To fix this, on the home menu of Fusion simply select the virtual machine, click on the Settings and click on Other Devices. Select Floppy and deselect Connect. Try again and installation should now proceed smoothly. Don’t believe me? Try it out :)
