Vmware fails to boot ISO

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Computer Specs:

Cpu: Ryzen 5 2600 6 core 12 thread

GPU:  Zotac GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB

MB: ASRock B450M PRO4-F MicroATX

RAM: Team T-Force Vulcan 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

OS Driver: Intel 660p Series 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive

OS: Windows 10 Version: 1903 Build: 18362.356

 

Vmware Version: VMware Workstation Pro 15.0.3 Build 12422535 x64

 

Issue: VMware fails upon creation of Virtual machine to recognize A Windows ISO file. When i boot up the virtual machine it goes straight to a black window and nothing happens. after waiting some time then trying to shut down the Virtual machine, it will lock up the entire program making it impossible to close Vmware itself. The system will never shut down and i will be forced to close the program by force closing the program in the task manager.

 

Other changes made on self research to fix previous issues: I've edited some registry keys due to "Guarded Host" being enabled via "Windows Features". I was lead to This video on how to fix it.  I applied these methods during a previous issue (as shown in the video) that I also had. this being said the registry keys that were changed in the vides are present on my OS. I don't know if this may help in solving why Vmware is not working.

Currently in my BIOS I have enabled these settings:

 SVM Mode -> set enabled
IOMMU -> set enabled.

Extras: Hyper-V is Enabled currently but Guarded Host is not

Are you sure you have a bootable ISO?

It's an official ISO file created by the Windows MediaCreationTool1903 software downloaded from their official website. As dumb and random as this sounds. I've actually resolved my issue. I had updated to VMware 15.1.0 and this fixed my issue completely. The ISO file is now recognized and bootable. Now I am going to begin testing if I can boot a MAC OS on VMware...

Do You know a recommended tool to unlock VMware to be able to boot mac OS? The one I currently have I don't really trust.
