Execute a boot ISO with VMware

There are on the net many boot ISOs, for example of Linux distros which provide LiveCDs. To boot these CDs without phisically burn them, we can use VMware with this special .vmx file.

Create a livecd.vmx file and fill it with the following code. Change your_image.iso with your cd image.

config.version = "8"
virtualHW.version = "4"
scsi0.present = "TRUE"
memsize = "256"
ide1:0.present = "TRUE"
ide1:0.fileName = "your_image.iso"
ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image"
floppy0.present = "FALSE"
ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
usb.present = "TRUE"
sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.virtualDev = "es1371"
displayName = "LiveCD"
guestOS = "otherlinux"
nvram = "otherlinux.nvram"

workingDir = ""

extendedConfigFile = "livecd.vmxf"
virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted"
tools.upgrade.policy = "manual"

ethernet0.addressType = "generated"
uuid.location = "56 4d 2e 06 25 1e 08 f9-2c 33 59 3b 29 e3 09 2f"
uuid.bios = "56 4d 2e 06 25 1e 08 f9-2c 33 59 3b 29 e3 09 2f"
checkpoint.vmState = "livecd.vmss"
ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:e3:09:2f"
ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"
