Which virtualization software? – Massimo Oct 25 '12 at 10:27

You probably have a corrupted ISO image; try downloading it again.

I've checked it out .my windows is 7 x64 and the iso file is x64 and I have tried two or three times.but it's not working . – Hadi Nemati Oct 25 '12 at 10:59

the version is Windows Server 2008 x64's not cracked.I got that from Darolfonoon institude. – Hadi Nemati Oct 25 '12 at 11:12
I would suggest as mentioned above by Massimo to re download the ISO file and try again - you most likely have a corrupt file. – Jake Elsley Oct 25 '12 at 11:17
