If you want to put Qubes under VMWare, I recommend 3.0, it installs every time.
If you have a server, then install Qubes under ESXi, it's what I did, and I've
not had issues doing it many times before I then put it onto my actual PC.
Qubes 2 also installs easily under VMWare, even on Player or Workstation on
local PC. Just be sure you have enough Virtual HDD space for it. (32 GB+)
As for 3.2 I'm not sure, I just put it on my Laptop using an HDD I had lying
So that is 1 way you can accomplish this too.
- Get another HDD that you have lying around.
- Install onto that on your PC.
- Mount HDD under VMWARE.
- Clone HDD to virtual disk.
- Boot and start the VM with only the virtual disk.
This method has to sometimes be used, as I was told when I had issues at one
point on my particular hardware (My laptop).
I did that, and it worked fine under VMWare Player 6.
On ESXi I installed directly on ESXi 5.5, worked first time.
So there are many options to get it working under VMWare.
