Virtual Server 2005 R2 and Windows Server 2008 Beta 3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows Vista Business 32-bit and I am running Virtual Server 2005 R2.  I am trying to create a new virtual machine running Windows Server 2008 Beta 3.  I have a copy of the Windows Server 2008 Beta 3 DVD and am trying to boot the new virtual machine from it, however it is not giving me the option to boot from it.  The message that I get is "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device".  I have made sure that my physicl DVD drive is attached to the VM.


    This is the first time I have tried to use Virtual Server 2005 on Vista.  I had been using it on XP without issues and am following the same steps.  Is there something specific to Vista to allow CD access?
