Guest os Boot Slowdown

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know a way to slow the boot of a guest OS in VMPlayer so the you have time to press a function key before the OS boots?

Hi Kado,

Its sounds like you have been having the same issue I have - trying to hit that F2 button before the OS loads eh? I've had a look around and can't find anything generic. I think its a case of being a lot quicker with the fingers.....

Regards,
Golden

That's what I thought Golden. At least with VBox if there is a bootable CD you get a countdown screen which helps.
