Operating system not found

Hi,

Iam trying to instal a solaris operating system in a vmware on my local windows system via an iso image named as "solaris10.vmx". but as soon as the vm console opens i get an error message as:

"PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Operating system not found"

Please help me out in solving the issue.

Regards
Laxxi

Your host (vmware) is expecting to PXE install a guest rather than find a bootable disk containing a guest.

Exactly which version of vmware are you using?
