Install OS on new Virtual Machine in VPC 2007

Issue: Attaching an OS to a new Virtual Machine in VPC 2007

Sometimes you come across an issue when you are building a new Virtual Machine in VPC 2007 where you go to the CD tab to attach an ISO image for an OS and the VPC console just sits there waiting and does not start the install.

The way to get around that is to get into the BIOS as the VPC is starting up by hitting the [Del] key, then go in and change the boot order to load from a CD-ROM first.

This will start the OS install as soon as you attach an iso image to the VPC.
