When running packer to create new VM images on ubuntu (focal fossa, 20.04) I found that the ISO seems to be not detected by the windows installer when booting:
That is, windows server installation initialization sais that "No images are available". This is odd to me because, after all, how would the windows server installation even start if there was no iso to begin with?
- How can i determine why it is that the windows OS installation doesn't see any OS images, and is the ability to properly load guest extensions or OS images related somehow?
- Is it possible that, some portions of the ISO arent readable by VMWare Workstation for some reason?
- Or, is the initial windows server installation step something that is controlled by an external program from the ISO (i.e. something in the BIOS of the VM)?
