    Hi, i have downloaded both x32 & x64 windows 10 10162 isos from the official site and have tried to install the images on the latest version of vmware workstation 11. This is the notice i keep on getting.

    I have installed a few of the previous images without coming across this notice before. Has anyone else seen this or know of a fix?

    In Settings of that machine unmount the floppy image, it contains the failing unattended setup.

    I solved this by adding the line:
    bios.forceSetupOnce = "TRUE"
    to the end of my .vmx file which I opened with notepad.

    I then entered BIOS and disabled the floppy drive and saved on exit. The install completed after this...

    Just do a normal install without unattended (the "I will install os later" option), i think it even uses less space on disk.

    Thx guys, i disabled the floppy drive in the settings and it seems to be working. Should have asked sooner rather than d/l each image at least 3 times!

    Yeah, if you don't know this, it's quite confusing :D.

    Before i never had to disable the floppy to install the previous images, don't know why they would suddenly change it, only creates more confusion.

    Depends on how the VM is created, i guess. Additionally MS changed the Preview keys lately :hmm:.

    This was a VMware Default Settings Problem, no need for any ISO changes.

    Yes VMWare when you select ISO file it will try and OS hardware and add it's own AutoUnattend.xml file or pid.txt ect just use the the "I will install os later" option" as member aireca mentioned earlier on.

    in vmware after the error, power off system and edit configuration tab; remove floppy, then power on installation will continue

    No it is just that if you use easy install and let it set up the hardware it will add floppy drive where as most modern systems no not have a floppy drive. So you need to manually remove it in hardware settings.
