[xubuntu] Hangup installing virtual machine

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, folks, I'm trying to install Xubuntu as a virtual machine, using Vmware, on an XP host. I'm using a .iso file that's on the hard drive. Partway through the install, I get an error message: "Unable to find a medium containing a live file system", which is odd, since that's after the point where the Xubuntu splash screen has come up and the install has started; obviously, the .iso has been found at that point. Any suggestions about how to fix or work around this hangup? Thanks! I. (Hardware)
