    The exe links to a windows version (server or workstation)

    vmware exp is the beta version of vmware. 185517 is a subversion of VMware 7. It seems that your method no longer works since vmware 6.5.3, I've tried that.

    Isn't this version only a closed beta at the moment?

    Can use existing BIOS

    The current method used for the 6.5.x builds does work with the 185517 build

    Build Win7 machine with all VMware settings/files in place

    Use current modded SLIC 2.1 BIOS

    Copy BIOS file to guest directory

    Add line to to settings file

    bios440.filename = "HP-SLIC_2.1.ROM" (or whatever your filename is)

    At this stage with guest will not boot

    Here is the key

    Delete the nvram file (VMware will recreate it)

    The machine now boots and guest can be activated

    Done!
