That happened to me the first time, but worked the second time and I knew the second install was different than the first install for I was all of a sudden presented with single gui "install-questions" regarding users, and stuff like that. Not what I did different the second time other than resize the partitions by a slight amount to ensure that nothing from the previous install was used, even a previously formatted partition. It installed the second try. > The only really relevant thing I found whilst searching was this: > > http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?messageID=400340&tstart=0 > > ...however, to my best knowledge, I did only do a minimum install. > > Again, the setup is exactly the same as several other machines, I can > provide details if they may help.
