Default Need help setting up virtual machine

I wanted to set up a virtual machine running Ubuntu on my computer. I downloaded VMware and installed it. I downloaded the Ubuntu Iso file and I got this vmx file(attachment). It opens up the first page that lets you install the OS and check the CD for defects and such, but once I choose Install Ubuntu It just gets into a neverending CPU loop. I opened up the Ubuntu.txt document it saves (not the attachment) when closing VMware and it said this thousands of times:
vcpu-0| AIOWIN32: 'ubuntu-7.04-desktop-i386.iso' : Failed to read: Reached the end of the file (38).
I've downloaded the iso twice now, is it still a faulty iso? or is something else wrong with it?
Attached Files
File Type: txt Ubuntu.txt (1,017 Bytes, 100 views)

Are you running on vista? Vista does not currently support VR machines except their virtual machine products.

you should be able to get VMware to work Vista...
Download Free VMware Workstation 6 Beta for Windows Vista My Digital Life

OSes do not have to do anything but be an OS...it is 3rd party software and hardware that has to make sure they work with any given OS...if they want to. etc

Default Re: Need help setting up virtual machine

I am running XP. Silverlord what do you mean? I don't think it will make any difference because I don't have any network drives besides my other family member's computers which don't have Ubuntu.

Sorry, realized this may have been the wrong place for this thread.
