I’m using the new VMPlayer 6 on Windows 7 and trying to install openSUSE 12.3. This caused me no problem in version 5.
This is a clean install from the DVD ISO which is the 32Bit version. When installing I choose ‘I will nstall the operating system later’.
I choose 1280MB for RAM, and a 25GB Hard Disk. The installation seems to go fine, but when finished it just shows the green openSUSE backgraound and there are icons or other information.
Just so I could test the ISO, I also installed VirtualBox and the installation worked fine.
Please let me know if you need any-more information.
I did try and ask this is the VMware forum but did not get a reply.
