    How can I install it using VMWare Please help.
    Bit in a vacuum here.

    First a few questions:
    What instance/version/product of VMware were you using in windows 7
    Did you get the VMware package installed in windows?
    How far did you get with installing SLED in VMware?
    What exactly went wrong ("there is a problem")?
    Leap 42.3 & 15.1 &KDE
    FYIs from the days of yore

    Thanks for you reply.



    I'm Using VMWare 7.1.3

    What do you mean by SLED?

    About problems

    I entered SUSE DVD that came with laptop, and tried to install SUSE, all in VMWare

    Step format done, Copying files, Restart and asked to remove the DVD.

    When restarted, It does some processes, and failed in step (Creating filesystem) and restart after 120 second.

    After this restart, it shows this error...

    GRUB loading, please wait...
    Error 24


    and can not do anything.

    Hope this info is sufficient

    How far did you get with installing SLED in VMware?

    It take more than half an hour, and Virtual machine size is about 8 GB

    SUSE enterprise Desktop - which means this is the wrong forum for you.

    > GRUB loading, please wait...
    > Error 24


    24 : Attempt to access block outside partition
    This error is returned if a linear block address is outside of the
    disk partition. This generally happens because of a corrupt
    filesystem on the disk or a bug in the code handling it in GRUB
    (it's a great debugging tool).

    ok, so your new laptop came with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED)
    installed...which means you need to be with the SLED folks, over in
    forums.novell.com

    this is the openSUSE forums....SLED and openSUSE are similar, but not
    the same..

    I was able to successfully install SLES 11 and SLED 11 using VMware Workstation 7. Out of curiousity, are you using the easy step wizard with VMware?

    I Installed SUSE Server from VMWare and installed and worked successfully.

    But this problem came with SLED

    Using VMWare, I booted from DVD, and next, next, ... till that error
