I have recently been experimenting with VMWARE. I am having problems installing LINUX MINT for a new Virtual Machine. I downloaded the .ISO from the Linux site. I can not seem to find the ISO after downloading it.

VMWARE WORKSTATION 6.5,2

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The ISO file would be in your default download folder. If you used internet explorer, it would not work without a download manager because there is a file size download limit of around 2 GB.

If you downloaded it to the VIC, you can go into storage and ask it to upload the file to the datastore for you. If you downloaded it on ESX, then make sure its in /vmfs/volumes/storage/

Then, in your VM settings, point to this file as a CD image, and make sure that you set the cd to be connected, and you will be able to boot off this CD.

    i should have been more clear. i downloaded the ISO with FireFox. I have the folder and can access it no problem. I cant find the ISO inside the folder. I see everything else that was included in the download except the ISO file. Maybe its hidden somewhere

    I'll presume that your primary OS is Windows... is it possible that you have your folder view settings set too restrictively? I can't recall if .iso is a normally-hidden extension. You should be able to find it, if the download was successful, by searching starting at the root of c: (and possibly other drive letters, if your machine is so configured) for "*.iso". If it's not found, then you didn't successfully download the image.
