REGRESSION: can't install windows 7 on a VM from host CD/DVD drive: misses driver
|Reported by:||matteosistisette||Owned by:|
I have created a VM on a Linux host in VB 4.1.10 and selected Windows 7 64bit as the machine type. I have created a vdi for the hard disk and attached the host's CD/DVD driver as the CD/DVD driver for the VM.
I have a Windows 7 64bit genuine installation DVD. I start the VM and try to install windows from this DVD, but within the first steps of the installation process it says that it is missing a driver for the CD/DVD unit, and asks me to browse for a driver that of course I don't have and that it cannot find in the installation DVD itself.
Note that I had previously installed the very same OS from this very same installation DVD on a VM on the very same host, with a previous version of VB.
So there is some regression that is preventing the guest Windows system to recognize the DVD drive.
