I have a Windows 7 OS. I installed the latest version of VMware Workstation-64 bit for windows and Downloaded the all-in-one-VM-1.1.0-99.ova file. When I run the ..OVA file on VMware workstation, it starts with Linux and ask me to select a option to boot. After entering in a mode it shows me a balck screen. Can any one help me out..?? I am attaching the snapshot taken.
It should automatically point to a graphical login. However, the default option selected in your screenshot should work (i.e., that is the typical boot option that is used). Make sure you have enough resources to give to the VM (2 vCPUs and 4 GB of RAM). It can take a few seconds to fully boot up, and you may see a black screen for some of that time.
Hi Clarke, I have enough space for it. I waited for hours and I still see the black screen. I am attaching the an snapshot of my resource. I don't know what is the problem, i tried several times still same result.
What is the size and checksum of the file you downloaded? While I doubt it's corrupt, it would be good to confirm. I don't use VMware WS on Windows, but I do use the latest VMware Fusion on the Mac, and the OVA works just fine there.
This could be a display issue, too. There are a lot of such reports on the web. The steps here (although for Linux MINT) may help:
Specifically, I've had to use the nomodeset trick in the past when installing Ubuntu within VMware ESXi.
Might be Clarke the file is corrupted. I will give a try. Thanks for the link as i have another lappy with Linux Mint and it was giving me the same result. Hope that it works or else will comment back.
