I'm not sure, but It looks like it might be trying to do a network boot.
Is your network working?

VM BIOS Settings

Are you able to access the VM BIOS settings (it can be tricky)?

Hold the "F2" key when the VM is booting (it may take several attempts due to the load speed).

Make sure your boot order is correct.

Just to confirm, you are trying to do a "Network boot from AMD Am79C970A"?

Will it boot if you set the BIOS to "Hard Drive"?

Can you install VMware Tools in VMware Player (I use VMware Workstation)?

You might have to wait for a VMware expert to look at this thread.

This one is easy to fix -- this screen simply shows your VM can't find any device which is bootable or has an OS on it.

In other words The VM can't find your boot device.

so

1) Have you actually INSTALLED the Guest OS

2) have you set the Virtual BIOS to boot from the correct device. That's the BIOS you can get when powering on your Guest OS. It's functionally equivalent to the BIOS when starting the MAIN computer

Remember for all intents and purposes a Virtual Machine is a separate computer with its own (Virtual) hardware and Bios.

In the vm settings (on the Host machine) you can set the VM to open the Virtual BIOS at the VM's next boot --if you don't do this using the traditional Func key probably won't work as the boot process will start too quickly for you to enter the correct key.

Enc screenshot -- note the option in my screenshot is greyed out here as I'm already in the GUEST OS. If you enable the option BEFORE powering on the guest the option will be available (not greyed out) and you'll boot straight into the virtual BIOS where you can change Boot order of devices etc etc.



Cheers
jimbo
