  • unattend within vmware 5.5.3 workstation

    I tried to perform an unattend install of xp on a 2k virtual session via unattend.

    It works to a certain point until after text mode where i receive a stop error 0x0000007b. i verified the virtual BIOS settings the boot sequence seems to be fine.



    Does anyone know if there is a workaround for this? Or is there a limitation in performing this task.

    The only limitation I see at the moment is that the question should be posted in the right forum (VMWare, that is )

      7b is inaccessible boot device.

      If you're using the BusLogic SCSI virtual hardware, the updated driver can be downloaded here:

      If you're using the LSILogic SCSI virtual hardware (preferred with XP and 2k3), the updated driver can be downloaded here:
      http://www.lsilogic.com/cm/DownloadSearch.do (search for the LSI20320-R controller)

        Hi Jason,

        Thanks for your input, i tried to buslogic driver, configured the massstorage and oemboot files section of my answer file however this still didnt work.

        I then decided to try my lab using virtual pc and this seemed to work successfully.
