Hi all. I'm totally newbee in this domain. I'm insterested in installing (and of course activating) microsoft os in vmware (using vmware player 3.0). So after reading a bit this forum ... i'm quite lost. If I understand well I need a slic 2.1 bios. But after ? I've got the bios of vmware player. Using phoenix editor, i added a slic table from dell and rebuild the bios. But then ? Is it possible to install with a retail version or do i need an oem version. I'm trying with retail version of xp sp3. Is there an oem key for installing ? Same problem with seven. It's not easy to find a step by step newbee guide. Can you help me ?
